    "Microsoft Internet Explorer is prone to an information-disclosure
    vulnerability because it fails to properly enforce cross-domain policies.

    This issue may allow attackers to access arbitrary websites in the context
    of a targeted user's browser session. This may allow attackers to perform
    actions in web applications with the privileges of exploited users or to
    gain access to potentially sensitive information. This may aid attackers in
    further attacks.

    Microsoft Internet Explorer version 6.0 on Windows XP SP2 is vulnerable to
    this issue; other versions may also be affected."

    MUAHAHA!

    IE cannot ever enforce cross-domain policies by design! Lie Di Yu has
    pointed that out back in 2004 and nothing has been changed since then.
