The specific flaw exists within the way Internet Explorer handles calls to the method swapNode(). When a call to swapNode is issued on an node within a document that has two body nodes, Internet Explorer frees an attribute field for one of the body nodes and then later re-uses the freed field during the node swap. This behavior could result in remote code execution under the context of the current user.
Microsoft has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More details can be found at:
