DESCRIPTION:
Matthew Murphy has reported a vulnerability in Internet Explorer,
which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's
system.

The vulnerability is caused due to error in the timing of
drag-and-drop events when certain objects not derived from HTML
documents (e.g. files within a folder view) are dragged. This race
condition can be exploited to place arbitrary files on a user's
system by tricking the user into interacting with a malicious web
site.

The vulnerability is related to:
SA12321

Successful exploitation requires a certain amount of timing and user
interaction.

SOLUTION:
Disable Active Scripting support for all but trusted sites.

Set the kill bit on the Shell.Explorer control.
