Another Zero-Day IE Scripting Exploit
Hemos June 09 2004

"A Computerworld Article reports a pair of vulnerabilities to Internet
Explorer that allow Windows machines to be 0wned by a single click on a
malicious web page. It was discovered by Dutch researcher Jelmer.

As usual, the primary workaround is to disable Active Scripting for any
sites that aren't Trusted, but you should have turned off that and
Javascript years ago for safety anyway. At least one of the holes is
fixed in XP Service Pack 2, but that doesn't fix previous versions of
Windows and it's still only beta.
