[security-alerts] FW: [SA15368] Microsoft Internet Explorer Multiple Vulnerabilities



> 
> 
> TITLE:
> Microsoft Internet Explorer Multiple Vulnerabilities
> 
> SECUNIA ADVISORY ID:
> SA15368
> 
> VERIFY ADVISORY:
> http://secunia.com/advisories/15368/
> 
> CRITICAL:
> Highly critical
> 
> IMPACT:
> Security Bypass, Exposure of sensitive information, System access
> 
> WHERE:
> From remote
> 
> SOFTWARE:
> Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.x
> http://secunia.com/product/11/
> Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.5
> http://secunia.com/product/10/
> Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.01
> http://secunia.com/product/9/
> 
> DESCRIPTION:
> Five vulnerabilities have been reported in Microsoft Internet
> Explorer, which can be exploited by malicious people to view
> potentially sensitive information, to trick users into downloading
> and executing arbitrary programs, and to compromise a user's system.
> 
> 1) A design error in the processing of keyboard shortcuts for certain
> security dialogs can e.g. be exploited to delay the "File Download"
> dialog box and trick users into executing a malicious ".bat" file
> after pressing the "r" key.
> 
> 2) A design error in the processing of mouse clicks in new browser
> windows and the predictability of the position of the "File Download"
> dialog box can be exploited to trick the user into clicking on the
> "Run" button of the dialog box. This is exploited by first causing a
> "File Download" dialog box to be displayed underneath a new browser
> window, and then tricking the user into double-clicking within a
> specific area in the new window. This will result in an unintended
> click of the "Run" button in the hidden "File Download" dialog box.
> 
> 3) An error exists in Internet Explorer when used with a HTTPS proxy
> server that requires clients to use Basic Authentication. This may
> cause web addresses that are sent from Internet Explorer to be
> disclosed to a third-party even when HTTPS connection is used.
> 
> 4) An error exists when certain COM objects that are not intended to
> be used with Internet Explorer are instantiated in Internet Explorer.
> This can be exploited to execute arbitrary code via a malicious
> webpage that instantiates a vulnerable COM object.
> 
> This is related to:
> SA16480
> 
> 5) An error exists in the initialisation of certain objects when the
> "window()" function is used in conjunction with the "<body onload>"
> event. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary code via a
> malicious webpage.
> 
> For more information:
> SA15546
> 
> The vulnerabilities #1, #2, and #5 have been confirmed on a fully
> patched system with Internet Explorer 6.0 and Microsoft Windows XP
> SP2. Other versions may also be affected.
> 
> SOLUTION:
> Apply patches.
