RE: YEY AGAIN Automatic remote compromise of InternetExplorer Service Pack 2 XP SP2

Hi,
 
Somehow the POC does not work on both of my WinXPSP2 pro boxes.
Both are fully patched, but one is hardened and the other is after a clean
install.
 
After running the POC, the IE opens the Help window, but then freezes for a
couple of minutes. 
After IE stops freezing, there is no Microsoft Office.hta on the startup
folder.
 
And yes, I'm running this on an Administrator account.
 
Can anyone else confirm this?

Microsoft Internet Explorer XP SP2 Fully Automated Remote Compromise

Dec, 21 2004

Vulnerable
----------
- Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0
- Microsoft Windows XP Pro SP2
- Microsoft Windows XP Home SP2

Not Tested
------------------------
- Microsoft Windows 98
- Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.x
- Microsoft Windows 2003 Server

Severity
---------
Critical - Remote code execution, no user intervention

Proof of Concept?
------------------

- If an error is shown, press OK. This is normal.

- Notice in your startup menu a new file called Microsoft Office.hta. When
run, this file will download and launch a harmless executable (which
includes a pretty neat fire animation)
