Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1 on Windows 2000 and Windows XP SP1 contains a vulnerability when viewing a web site using the HTTP 1.1 protocol. If the web site uses HTTP 1.1 compression and contains an overly long URL, a buffer overflow can occur. This vulnerability was introduced with the first release of the MS06-042. This module exploits this vulnerability. WARNING: This is an early release module. This is not the final version of this module. It is a pre-released version in order to deliver a module as quickly as possible to our customers that may be useful in some situations.
