Microsoft to fix 'download warning' flaw
Contributed by: G3nu1n3, at 11/23/2004 09:56:00 PM.

Microsoft has said it will take "appropriate action" to fix a problem in Internet Explorer and Windows XP SP2 that allows a malicious Web site to bypass the browser's warnings when downloading potentially harmful content.

The problem was first reported to Microsoft on Nov. 15 by security company Finjan. At the time, Microsoft said Finjan’s security advisory was "misleading and possibly erroneous". On Monday, French Web site K-otik published exploit codes that could take advantage of the same vulnerability. On Tuesday, a Microsoft spokesperson said that the company still believes the claims are misleading because "significant user interaction and user interface steps have to occur before any malicious code can be executed."

However, the software giant did admit that it was possible to bypass the security warnings in IE, even when using Windows XP with Service Pack 2.
