Microsoft just released a critical update for IE,
Windows-KB870669-x86-ENU.exe. This update is applicable to Windows NT,
2000, XP, and 2003. There is no associated security bulletin.
The download is available here:
The update disables the ADODB.Stream object from Internet Explorer. This
vulnerability has been known for about a year, but has not previously
been acknowledged by Microsoft. It has been used in dozens of attacks to
silently install and run malicious software, including the last week's
Download.Ject attack (also known as JS.Scob.Trojan, Scob, and
JS.Toofeer), and this week's attack which installs a malicious BHO
through compromised advertisement servers which then steals on-line
banking account names and passwords, called "Trojan.Spy.Small.AA",
"PWS.Banker.C.Trojan", "PWS-WebMoney.gen", and "bankhook.a".
Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
