    Each and every command execution vulnerability in Internet Explorer over the
    last few years have all depended on the functionality of local security
    zones. Whenever you are crafting an exploit, you want to navigate a window
    object to a local security zone, inject some scripting or HTML into the
    window object and subsequently use the features of the local security zone
    to execute your payload. Properly locking down the My Computer zone prevents
    all of these from having any effect.
