Funny enough, Paul Szabo was quick to point out that Amit Klein found the
same vector that I used here for client-side backdoors in May 2006 (still
not patched?! *shrieks in horror*), but for cache poisoning:
  "IE + some popular forward proxy servers = XSS, defacement
(browser cache poisoning)"

This is getting depressing. May 2006.

but not really surprising, yes?

Remember browserfun#18 (Tuesday, July 18, 2006)
Metasploit, "exploit in the wild" like they said.

Patched in October. 3 months of "real insecurity".

Thx to Determina.
