A vulnerability has been discovered in Internet Explorer, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerability is caused due to an input validation error in the handling of FTP file transfers. This can be exploited by a malicious FTP server to create files in arbitrary locations via directory traversal attacks by tricking a user into downloading malicious files (e.g. by dragging or copying a file or folder).
The vulnerability has been confirmed on a fully patched system with Internet Explorer 6.0 and Microsoft Windows 2000 SP4 / XP SP1.
