SANS: New IE Vulnerability
There is a new exploit for Internet Explorer that was released by Secunia today. The exploit allows for arbitrary code execution. From the Secunia advisory:
"The vulnerability is caused due to an error in the processing of the "createTextRange()" method call applied on a radio button control. This can be exploited by e.g. a malicious web site to corrupt memory in a way, which allows the program flow to be redirected to the heap."
In simpler terms, its a heap overflow just waiting to happen. I doubt will have to wait long for exploit code to be published. SANS - Internet Storm Center - Cooperative Cyber Threat Monitor And Alert System
