Microsoft Outlook Javascript Execution Vulnerability

by Nikola Strahija on March 24th, 2002 An issue has been reported in Microsoft Outlook which could cause a user to unknowingly execute Javascript embedded in an HTML email message.

Reportedly, this issue is exploitable if Javascript is embedded in the "about:" or "javascript:" URL of an HREF attribute. Upon the recipient attempting to access the link, embedded Javascript will execute even if scripting is disabled in IE.
