Exploit Based On Leaked Windows Code Released

By Julio Franco
Feb 16, 2004
  1. From Slashdot news coverage: A post to Bugtraq from SecurityTracker.com reports an Internet Explorer 5 exploit that has been released based on the Win2K code leak: 'It is reported that a remote user can create a specially crafted bitmap file that, when loaded by IE, will trigger an integer overflow and execute arbitrary code.' Only affects IE 5 apparently, but still it didn't take long.
