Secunia Research has discovered a vulnerability in Internet Explorer, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerability is caused due to a memory corruption error within the handling of certain exceptional conditions. This can e.g. be exploited by registering an exception handler for an object and then trigger a certain condition via e.g. a certain sequence of nested "object" HTML tags.
Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code when a user e.g. visits a malicious web site.
NOTE: This vulnerability is a variant of a browser crash bug initially reported by Michal Zalewski.
