Internet Explorer "javaprxy.dll" Memory Corruption Vulnerability



SEC Consult has reported a vulnerability in Microsoft Internet Explorer, which potentially can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.


The vulnerability is caused due to the javaprxy.dll COM object being instantiated incorrectly in Internet Explorer via the object tag. This can be exploited via a malicious web site to cause a memory corruption.


Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code.


The vulnerability has been reported in versions 5.01, 5.5, and 6.0.



The vendor recommends setting Internet and Local intranet security zone settings to "High".

I'd suggest the following modification:


Get a different browser. For example, switch to Firefox
