RE: playing for fun with <=IE7

Hi,

This is actually a 3 years old vulnerability.
It can also be used to open any type of file (with .exe extension) using its
external application, instead of opening it with the associated browser
plug-in (if exists).
E.g. I've been able to use this old vuln to automate the PDF attack vector
found by GNUCitizen's pdp.

playing for fun with <=IE7 

Impact: who knows ...

Fix Available: no


-------------------------------------------------------



1) Bug 

2) Proof of concept

3)Conclusion




======

1) Bug 

======

it's possible to bypass the extension filter of <=IE7  this can result by
downloading

an arbitrary exe file 


=====

2)proof of concept

=====

let's take this exemple :

http://dams083.free.fr/tmp/putty.exe

this is simply putty .

you click on this and then you will be prompted for downloading the file.

but what about if we do :

http://dams083.free.fr/tmp/putty.exe?1.txt

... the .exe is showed.

now let's go a bit ahead :

http://dams083.free.fr/tmp/putty.exe?1.cda

wow my .exe is downloaded directly and located in temporary files ( and
"""opened""" by windows media player).

works with theses extension :

.log

.dif

.sol

.htt

.itpc

.itms

.dvr-ms

.dib

.asf

.tif

etc ...

=====

5) Conclusion

=====

this is very funny , because actually it only works for .exe extensions.


.COM , .PIF , etc  you CANT do this. ( overwrite the extension , and then
bypass the filter)

i guess we can wonder what the heck.
