Affects IE 5.01, 5.5, and 6.0 (regardless of platform).

Vulnerability allows VBScript launched in one frame, to access the
contents of other frames (in particular, frames that are consider in a
different domain, e.g. a frame in the Internet Zone can access the
contents of a frame in the My Computer zone). As such, a script could
read local files on a target system.

Microsoft rates this issue as Moderate for Internet/Intranet services,
and Critical for clients.
