3) Description of Vulnerabilities

Secunia Research has discovered multiple vulnerabilities in
Microsoft Internet Explorer, which can be exploited by malicious
people to disclose sensitive information, bypass certain security
restrictions and compromise a user's system.

1) The vulnerability is caused due to insufficient validation of drag
and drop events from the "Internet" zone to local resources for valid
images containing script code. This can be exploited by e.g. a
malicious website to plant arbitrary file types on a user's system
via a specially crafted "Content-Disposition" HTTP header with a dot
appended in the filename.

Example:
"Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=malicious.bat."

This is related to:
SA12321

The vulnerability has been confirmed on a fully patched system
(without MS05-014) with Internet Explorer 6.0 and
Microsoft Windows XP SP1/SP2.

2) The vulnerability is caused due to insufficient cross zone
restrictions. This can be exploited to link to local resources when a
user clicks a link on e.g a malicious website.

The vulnerability has been confirmed in
Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 running Windows 2000,
Windows XP SP1 and Windows XP SP2.

3) The vulnerability is caused due to an error in the handling of
websites inside the "Temporary Internet Files" folder. This can be
exploited to cause a site to be loaded in context of the
"Temporary Internet Files" folder when a user clicks a link on e.g. a
malicious website.

Further exploitation involves gaining knowledge of a user's username
and retrieving documents found inside the "Temporary Internet Files"
folder.

The vulnerability has been confirmed in
Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 running Windows 2000,
Windows XP SP1 and Windows XP SP2.

4) A parsing error in the "codebase" attribut of the "object" tag.
This can be exploited to execute local files with any file extension
from the "Local Computer Zone" by appending "?.exe".

The vulnerability has been confirmed in
Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 running Windows 2000 and
Windows XP SP1.

NOTE: A combination of the vulnerabilities 2, 3 and 4 can be exploited
to execute arbitrary code on Microsoft Internet Explorer running
Windows 2000 and Windows XP SP1, in combination with a
third-party software which stores malicious files in a predictable
location.

======================================================================
4) Solution

Microsoft has released patches (see MS05-014 for details).
