Internet Explorer 5.x URL flaw

by phiber on May 21st, 2001 There is a new vulnerability in Internet Explorer 5.x. You can reproduce the vulnerability by typing gopher://: in the address bar. This vulnerability is very much alike like the one in the older versions of Internet Explorer which was: "ftp://:". I have tested it on Win2k SP1, Internet Explorer 6.00.2462.0000.
