    Internet Explorer "javaprxy.dll" Memory Corruption Vulnerability

    Good old Internet Exploder has a new "extremely critical" vulnerability listed on Secunia.
    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 allows execution of arbitrary code, but requires that the file "javaprxy.dll" exists on the system.

    NOTE: "javaprxy.dll" is included with Microsoft Java Virtual Machine. Exploit code is publicly available.
    The easy fix to this is to stop using a broken virtual machine and go and get Sun's version instead.
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    One of the first things I do when installing Windows is get Sun Java. So much more stable. Never had a problem with it.
