Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) contains a buffer overflow vulnerability that can be exploited to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running IE.
It appears that this vulnerability was discovered using the mangleme tool.
By convincing a user to view a specially crafted HTML document (e.g., a web page or an HTML email message), an attacker could execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user. The attacker could also cause IE (or the program using the WebBrowser control) to crash.
