* Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1 (64-Bit Edition)
* Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 for Windows Server 2003
* Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 for Windows Server 2003 (64-Bit
Edition)

These vulnerabilities affect the following versions of the Microsoft
Windows operating system:
* Microsoft Windows NT Workstation 4.0 Service Pack 6a
* Microsoft Windows NT Server 4.0 Service Pack 6a
* Microsoft Windows NT Server 4.0 Terminal Server Edition Service
Pack 6

and Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition (Me)

Please note that these vulnerabilities my affect any software that
uses the Microsoft Windows operating system to render HTML or
graphics.

Overview

Microsoft Internet Explorer contains three vulnerabilities that may
allow arbitrary code to be executed. The privileges gained by a remote
attacker depend on the software component being attacked. For example,
a user browsing to an unsafe web page using Internet Explorer could
have code executed with the same privilege as the user. These
vulnerabilities have been reported to be relatively straightforward to
exploit; even vigilant users visiting a malicious website, viewing a
malformed image, or reading an HTML-rendered email message may be
affected.

I. Description

Microsoft Security Bulletin MS04-025 describes three vulnerabilities
in Internet Explorer; more detailed information is available in the
individual vulnerability notes. Note that in addition to Internet
Explorer, any applications that use the Internet Explorer HTML
rendering engine to interpret HTML documents may present additional
attack vectors for these vulnerabilities.

VU#266926 - Microsoft Internet Explorer contains an integer overflow
in the processing of bitmap files

An integer overflow vulnerability has been discovered in the way that
Internet Explorer processes bitmap image files. This vulnerability
could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on a
vulnerable system by introducing a specially crafted bitmap file.
(Other resources: CAN-2004-0566)

VU#685364 - Microsoft Internet Explorer contains a double-free
vulnerability in the processing of GIF files

A double-free vulnerability has been discovered in the way that
Internet Explorer processes GIF image files. When processing GIF image
files, the routine responsible for freeing memory may attempt to free
the same memory reference more than once. Deallocating the already
freed memory can lead to memory corruption, which could cause a
denial-of-service condition or potentially be leveraged by an attacker
to execute arbitrary code.
(Other resources: CAN-2003-1048-)

VU#713878 - Microsoft Internet Explorer does not properly validate
source of redirected frame Microsoft Internet Explorer does not
properly display URLs

As previously discussed in TA-163A, Microsoft Internet Explorer does
not adequately validate the security context of a frame that has been
redirected by a web server. An attacker could exploit this
vulnerability to evaluate script in different security domains. By
causing script to be evaluated in the Local Machine Zone, the attacker
could execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running
Internet Explorer. For a detailed technical analysis of this
vulnerability, please see VU#713878.
(Other resources: CAN-2004-0549)

II. Impact

Remote attackers exploiting the vulnerabilities described above may
execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the
software components being attacked (e.g., Internet Explorer).
Attackers can exploit these vulnerabilities by convincing a victim
user to visit a malicious website, view a malformed image, or read an
HTML-rendered email message. No user intervention is required beyond
viewing an attacker-supplied HTML document or image. For further
details, please see the individual vulnerability notes.

III. Solution

Apply a patch from Microsoft

Apply the appropriate patch as specified by Microsoft Security
Bulletin MS04-025. Please note that this bulletin provides a
cumulative update that replaces all previously released updates for
Internet Explorer, including those provided in MS04-004. However,
users who have applied hotfixes released after MS04-004 will need to
install MS04-025. Please see the FAQ section of Microsoft's advisory
for more details.

Follow Microsoft recommendations for workarounds

Microsoft provides several workarounds for each of these
vulnerabilities. Please consult the appropriate section(s) of
Microsoft Security Bulletin MS04-025.

Pa i treba da ide na zastitu, ali ajde bre ljudi angazujte se ima nas.

@LaserJat: Sam si izabrao to sto koristis. Postoji gomila drugih sigurnijih, boljih operativnih sistema pocevsi od Linuxa, FreeBSD-a..itd
