    Microsoft Internet Explorer MHTML URI Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

    "Microsoft Internet Explorer is susceptible to a remote buffer-overflow
    vulnerability in 'INETCOMM.DLL'. The application fails to properly
    bounds-check user-supplied input data before copying it into an
    insufficiently sized memory buffer.

    Remote attackers may exploit this issue to crash applications that use the
    affected library. This includes Internet Explorer, Windows Explorer, and
    possibly others. Remote code execution may also be possible, but this has
    not been confirmed. "
