Microsoft Internet Explorer NULL Byte CA SSL Certificate Validation Security Bypass Vulnerability

Microsoft Internet Explorer is prone to a security-bypass vulnerability because it fails to properly validate the domain name in a signed CA certificate, allowing attackers to substitute malicious SSL certificates for trusted ones.

Successful exploits allow attackers to perform man-in-the-middle attacks or impersonate trusted servers, which will aid in further attacks.
