04.10.2003 - MS03-011: Flaw in Microsoft VM Could Enable System Compromise (816093)

View Microsoft related news. The Microsoft VM is a virtual machine for the Win32 operating environment. The Microsoft VM is shipped in most versions of Windows and in most versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer. A new security vulnerability has been reported that affects the ByteCode Verifier component of the Microsoft VM. It occurs because the ByteCode verifier does not correctly look for certain malicious code when a Java applet is being loaded. The attack vector for this new security issue would likely involve an attacker creating a malicious Java applet and inserting it into a Web page that would exploit this vulnerability when it was opened. An attacker could then host this malicious Web page on a Web site or could send it to a user in e-mail. The present Microsoft VM has been updated to include a fix for this newly reported security vulnerability. This version of VM includes all previously released fixes to the VM.
