this related to
IconHandler, and is it exploitable?
Disassembly window shows that there was an attempt to read dword
at [EAX] (EAX=0). So at first glance this doesn't seem to be
exploitable, but I'm not a win32 expert, and intuition
suggests that there
must be a way.
One possible exploit is to simply place the file on your desktop.
explorer.exe goes to 100% cpu.
