That's what I have been trying to entire time. But for some reason you can't
pass parameters to the file correctly.
Ex- The behavior of  code red passing commands to cmd.exe.

But it doesn't seem to like that. However the exploit released on FD
mentioned visiting a shared folder.

What I was thinking was that this exploit would have to be multi layered and
have the ability to pass params. to the exe.

So far I don't see that happening.

My question:

What about the problem with IE still? They haven't attempted to correct the
issue or make ANY public announcements. I know they have enough holes but
still.

I think this problem showcases the great response by the Mozilla team to
correct issues and hopefully will help with the move AWAY from IE and M$.

The advisory mentions that combining this with a BoF can result in remote
code execution, but they totally forget to mention that formatstring
exploits, integeroverflows, XSS, SQL injection, etc... might cause the same
problems too. I bet they just read FD and didn't think for themselves. As
far as I can see, this bug allows an attacker to remotely abuse any
vulnerability a local program might be subject to, thus making any local
exploit a possible remote exploit.

It would seem that one would have to be able to pass
parameters to the file being called for these types of
attacks to be possible.
