hi!

today i played around a bit with my ie (6.0) to test something and i

found the following behaviour:

when calling a url like

  about:mooh

ie shows me a page with the content 'mooh' and when i call

  about:<script>alert('*plopp*');</script>

a small alert popps up and says me '*plopp*', so it seems, that i can

inject any code i want.

i am not sure if its what the 'about:'-construct is for, but mozilla

doesn't include everything after the ':' in the body of the document.

sry if this was reportet before, but i haven't found something about

this in google or in the archives.

i think its an interesting behaviour ..

btw: about:mozilla seems to be special .. it looks a bit strange ..
