IE7 Final Vulnerable to Old Exploit

Recommended Posts

UPDATE: Microsoft has responded to the issue, saying the flaw actually lies in Outlook Express. The company is investigating the situation.

Less than 24 hours after its final release, Internet Explorer 7 has been found to be vulnerable to an exploit dating back to November 2003, which was discovered affecting IE6 last April. The issue surrounds Microsoft's handling of MIME HTML resources, security company Secunia said in an advisory.

The vulnerability apparently involves a very simple trick where a call to a MIME HTML, or MHTML, resource can trigger the running of an executable file, even with high-level security settings.


Ha, shows how bad Microsoft really... is in releasing thier updated software. They should be more careful and take their sweet time :D
