well, i read about a hacker scenario once that utilizes IE vulnerabilities
by exploiting the interests of employees. basically, you lure an employee
to a website you prepared that exploits some bug in IE to install a trojan
on that pc, thus bypassing firewall and other security precautions.
Don't forget that the "website" you lure the person too can also be an
email, or anything else with embedded HTML - one of those chain-mail power
point things - almost anything.
