There is a URL protocol handler command injection vulnerability in Internet

Thor, thank you for sharing. Nice work.

To paraphrase Guninski, this is still not a 0day. It is a vulnerability 
being disclosed.

Explorer for Windows that allows you to execute shell commands with arbitrary 
arguments. This vulnerability can be triggered without user interaction 
simply by visiting a webpage.

When Internet Explorer encounters a reference to content inside a registered 
URL protocol handler scheme it calls ShellExecute with the EXE image path and 
passes the entire request URI without any input validation. For the sake of 
demonstration I have constructed an exploit that bounces through Firefox via 
the FirefoxURL protocol handler. The full advisory and a working Proof of 
Concept exploit can be found at
