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 an error when processing data streams and can be exploited to trigger a use-after-free condition by returning a specially crafted data stream of e.g. an unexpected MIME-type for which no handler is registered.
Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code when a user visits a malicious website.
