I attempted to run the exploit sample for #2:
<script language="Javascript">
var obj = document.createElement("object");
obj.data = "file://127.0.0.1/C$/.../index.dat";
obj.type = "text/html";
obj.id = "obj_results";
obj.width = "500px";
obj.height = "300px";
document.body.appendChild(obj);
</script>

In the latest IE8 post recent patches. The first thing I noticed is that I receive this message preventing the script:
"To help protect your security, Internet Explorer has restricted this webpage from running scripts or ActiveX controls that could access your computer. Click here for options..."

The second thing that I noticed is then when I allowed the script to run, it did not display any data as it was suggested it would. Secunia might need to re-test this vulnerability in their labs and see if it is still relevant or not.

I was unable to exploit myself using this vulnerability.

When I ran the vuln in #1, with the code:

<object data="index.dat" type="text/html" width="100%" height="50"></object>

And, again it blocked it, I accepted, and then I received this warning:

Cannot find 'file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/nrush/Deskt op/index.dat'. Make sure the path or Internet address is correct.

So, I created a index.dat on my desktop and typed it worked inside, reloaded, and it worked.

I'm not sure if I just didn't do the #2 vuln correctly and that's why it didn't work, or not. However, vuln #1 is definitely still exploitable.

Thanks Pallisade for the fantastic analysis. I hope Secunia did double check it because I came to the same conclusion. The script did not display any data as it was suggested it would. I also received the same warning:Cannot find 'file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/nrush/Deskt op/index.dat'. Make sure the path or Internet address is correct. So, I adhere with your conclusion.
