Microsoft Outlook Express for MacOS HTML Attachment Automatic Download Vulnerability



The remote host may be tricked into downloading a malicious file


The remote host is running Outlook Express 5.0 for MacOS. This version of Express will automatically download attachments to HTML messages, without prompting the user. This weakness does not allow for a means of forcing the user to execute any code, or place files in a specific folder, but could be used in conjunction with other attacks.


Upgrade to the latest version.
