Microsoft Internet Explorer DBCS Remote Memory Corruption Vulnerability: This vulnerability affects systems that use Double-Byte Character Sets. Systems that are affected are Windows language versions that use a Double Byte Character Set language. Examples of languages that use DBCS are Chinese, Japanese, and Korean languages. Customers using other language versions of Windows might also be affected if "Language for non-Unicode programs" has been set to a Double Byte Character Set language.

CVE: CVE-2006-1189

Vendor
Microsoft Inc.

Products affected:

Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1 on Microsoft Windows 2000 Service Pack 4
and Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 1
Internet Explorer 6 for Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2
Internet Explorer 6 for Microsoft Windows Server 2003
Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1 on Microsoft Windows 98, Microsoft
Windows 98 SE, and Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition



This vulnerability affects systems that use Double-Byte Character Sets.
Systems that are affected are Windows language versions that use a
Double Byte Character Set language. Examples of languages that use DBCS
are Chinese, Japanese, and Korean languages. Customers using
other language versions of Windows might also be affected if "Language
for non-Unicode programs" has been set to a Double Byte Character Set
language.


Overview:

There exists a buffer overflow in Microsoft Internet Explorer in the
parsing of DBCS URLS.

This vulnerability could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the
victim's system when the victim visits a web page or views an HTML email
message.

This attack may be utilized wherever IE parses HTML, such as webpages, email,
newsgroups, and within applications utilizing web-browsing functionality.


Details:

URLMON.DLL does not properly validate IDN containing double-byte character
sets (DBCS), which may lead to remote code execution.

Exploiting this vulnerability seems to need a lot of more work but we
believe that
exploitation is possible.


POC:

No PoC will be released for this.


FIX:

Microsoft has released an update for Internet Explorer which is
set to address this issue. This can be downloaded from:

2005.12.29 Vendor responded
2006.04.11 Vendor released MS06-0xx patch
2006.04.11 Advisory released
