allows you to eliminate a security vulnerability in the HTML Help function in Microsoft Internet Explorer.




Under certain conditions, the vulnerability could let a malicious Web site perform inappropriate actions on the computer of a visiting user.

The HTML Help function provides the ability to launch code via shortcuts included in HTML Help files. If a compiled HTML Help (CHM) file were to be referenced by a malicious Web site, it could potentially be used to launch code on a visiting user's computer without the user's approval.

Such code could take any actions that the user could take, including adding, editing, and deleting data, as well as communicating with a remote Web site.

A Web site could only invoke an HTML Help file if it resided on a UNC share accessible from the user's machine, or on the user's machine itself. A firewall that blocks NETBIOS would prevent the former case from being exploited. Adhering to standard security practices would prevent the latter.

Moreover, an HTML Help file could only be invoked if active scripting was permitted in the security zone in which the hacker's site resided.

The patch eliminates the vulnerability by enabling an HTML Help file to use shortcuts only if it resides on the local machine.
