Re: MSIE Nested Object Vulnerability Is Exploitable

Hello,

A little update on the MSIE Nested Object vulnerability.

During further investigation of the issue reported by Michal Zalewski
and the exploit provided by Secunia to Microsoft on Wednesday 26th
April, we have concluded that the exploit does not exploit the exact
issue reported by Michal Zalewski but a variant hereof.

Microsoft therefore treats this as a privately disclosed vulnerability,
thus Secunia will not be releasing any further details before Microsoft
releases a patch for this vulnerability.

Kind regards,

Hello,

There has recently been some discussion regarding whether or not the
MSIE Nested Object Vulnerability reported by Michal Zalewski is
exploitable or not.

Because of this, Secunia has received several enquiries and comments
about the "Highly critical" rating of this advisory (SA19762) as no
proof of exploitation has been publicly disclosed.

In response to this, we would like to stress that Secunia has developed
a working exploit for this vulnerability. This exploit will not be
disclosed publicly, but was sent to Microsoft on Wednesday 2006-04-26.
The advisory rating of "Highly critical" and "System access" impact is
therefore fully justified.

Kind regards,
