1) An error in Windows Mail within the handling of UNC navigation requests can be exploited to execute arbitrary code via a local file or UNC path when a user clicks on a link in a specially crafted email message.
2) An error in the MHTML protocol handler when returning MHTML content can be exploited to read data from another security zone or domain in Internet Explorer when a user visits a specially crafted web page.
