    Apple MacOS Internet Explorer File Execution Vulnerability

    A vulnerability has been discovered in MacOS systems running Internet Explorer 5.0 and earlier. MacOS X is not affected by this issue.

    File URLs may be used by a malicious webmaster to execute programs on a web user's local system. The exact path to the location of the file must be known. This includes being able to anticipate the name of a particular user's hard drive.

    • This issue may be exploited to execute "Speakable Items" in MacOS 9.0 and later.
    • This issue may also be exploitable through maliciously crafted HTML-enabled e-mail.
