For a detailed description, please see the following article.

We have released a new note which includes additional information to the
previous warning.

There are three new issues:
  1.  Windows2000 is also affected
  2.  IE5 has additional hole for "Existence Attack" over whole C:\
  3.  Patch available from Microsoft with inappropriate description
      of the vulnerability

Thank you.
