Sorry that I do not understand your very interesting explanations.
I examined http-equivs demo, but he isn't using the DYNSRC attribute
anywhere near the drag&drop part.
The only file containing "dynsrc" is his pseudo database foobar.txt, which
is used in the last stage of the exploit, to download "code".
His drop source is included with a simple
<img src="malwarez" width="30" height="30" style="cursor:hand" title="drag me!">
Absolutely no DYNSRC here.
So the question stays: malwarez carries no extension, it is a valid GIF
image, but when it is dropped, it is named "malwarez.htm"
The only explanation I have, is that the server declares
malwarez to be HTML:
# wget -S http://www.malware.com/malwarez
1 HTTP/1.0 200 OK
8 Content-Type: text/html
So IE just uses the Content-Type to name this file.
