MS09-023: Vulnerability in Windows Search Could Allow Information Disclosure (963093)

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

A vulnerability in Windows Search may lead to information
disclosure.

Description :

The remote Windows host contains a version of Windows Search that has a
flaw in the way it uses MSHTML (a.k.a. Trident) to render HTML content
that could result in information disclosure. If an attacker can trick a
user on the affected host into putting a specially crafted HTML file on
the system or in an indexed mail box and get the user to perform a
specific search, the issue could be leveraged to disclose information,
forward user data to a third party, or access any data on the affected
systems that was accessible to the logged-on user.
