I've contacted Microsoft (secure () microsoft com) about the first problem you've mentioned on 2003-02-17 and they told me that they'll looking into this. I've provided them further details on 2003-02-21 as I've found out that there are much more way to exploit this - telnet will work, but Windows supports a much higher number of possible protocols you can use for this with the same and other strange results (try scp:// for example on Windows ME/XP).

After some tries to get more information about this issue, a mail dated 2003-04-08 finally got answered on 2003-04-13 with the results that's more or less "behaviour by design", but they want to research on this further. I never heared back from them anymore...

I've found some sample VB script created by person using nickname 'netric'
and creating large number of FRAMES in Internet Explorer and mass executing
'telnet://www.microsoft.com:80' requests. I believe this dangerous VBS
scripts is known to everyone already (AVP recognizes it as
Trojan.VBS.IFram). Well, I believe it is right moment to inform Bugtraq
