Microsoft Looking Into Windows VBScript Bug — Application Development Trends


 

Jabulani Leffall writes, “Microsoft released a security advisory on Monday describing a zero-day vulnerability involving some older Windows versions and VBScript when used with Internet Explorer.

The vulnerability permits a complicated exploit only on systems using Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Server 2003. Newer Windows versions aren't affected, according to the advisory. To pull off the exploit, users have to be diverted to a malicious Web site, and they have to push the F1 (Help) button on the keyboard while a script is running.”
