 What do  you think are the real realworld possibilities of a problem?

 (1) HIGH: Microsoft Internet Explorer Multiple Vulnerabilities

 Affected Products:

 Internet Explorer 6.0

 Possibly Internet Explorer versions 5.01 and 5.5

 Description:

 Multiple new vulnerabilities have been reported in Internet Explorer which
 can be exploited in tandem by a malicious website to execute arbitrary code
 and/or access sensitive information on a system running a fully patched
 browser (with the latest MS03-048 patch installed).

 Technical details and proof-of-concept exploits have been posted.

 Status: Vendor has not confirmed, no patch is available.

 Council Site Actions:

 Due to the late-breaking nature of this problem, we were unable to solicit
 input from the council sites.
