This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of Microsoft Internet Explorer. User interaction is required to exploit this vulnerability in that the target must visit a malicious page.
The specific flaw exists in the handling of the "by" property of an animateMotion SVG element. By assigning other DOM elements to this property, a memory corruption occurs during the destruction of a Variant data type. The corruption causes an overwrite of a virtual function address allowing for the execution of arbitrary code.
Microsoft has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More details can be found at:
