IE Exploit Attacks Another Piece of ActiveX
By Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols
July 7, 2004

Using Internet Explorer hasn't gotten any safer in the past few days as a Dutch security hacker, Jelmer Kuperus, pointed out yet another unblocked security problem in the popular Web browser.

The latest exploit, an attack on a Windows ActiveX component called Shell.Application, is similar to the Download.Ject attack, also called JS.Scob.Trojan. In that exploit, crackers broke into IIS servers on several popular but still unnamed sites and used them to spread keyboard loggers, proxy servers and other malware through IE's ActiveX scripting technology.
