Web Browser / Outlook Express - stupid url handler behavior
I doubt this warrants a fix ( nor Advisory ) , but it is realy dumb,
note the sidebar and titles in OE when testing.
Except of course that it gives you a way to exploit that recent
overly-long LIST response buffer overflow[*] by forcing a connection to your
evil nntp server.... muhahaahahaaaa!
[*] Looked it up now. It's MS05-030.
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
