Subject: DoS vulnerability in Internet Explorer

Hello Bugtraq!

I want to warn you about Denial of Service vulnerability in Internet

Explorer. Yesterday I already informed Microsoft.

This attack I called DoS via homepage.



With this exploit in IE6 the browser blocks, so it's become impossible to

use it and it's only possible to close it (via Task Manager).

With this exploit in IE7 the browser freezes after click on the link .

Vulnerable versions are Internet Explorer 6 (6.0.2900.2180), Internet

Explorer 7 (7.0.6000.16711) and previous versions (and possible next

versions too).

I mentioned about this vulnerability at my site


Best wishes & regards,
