Just to add... this, too, works on using shell.application,
a bug which has been open for around ten months.
In fact, I don't think there has been a bug in about ten
months (coincidentally) that does not rely on either Jelmer's
adodb bug or your shell.application bug.
Microsoft can remove the threat from all users right now, today,
and issue a fix. We won't see criminals using these things
to grab people's money tommorrow. We won't see hundreds of articles
critical of their browser. We won't see devious, targetted
attacks on bank employees or anyone else.
Remove the escalating security holes, and you remove the
ones that depend on it. They then might only serve some use
for phishers and the like, people who are only minorly more
successful using such exploits over using straight cons.
