There's a new IE exploit in town, pilgrim, and this time it's aiming for your cupholder, err, CD-ROM tray. This code apparently opens all CD-ROM drives when IE encounters it:
Set oWMP = CreateObject("WMPlayer.OCX.7")
Set colCDROMs = oWMP.cdromCollection
if colCDROMs.Count >= 1 then
For i = 0 to colCDROMs.Count - 1
Next ' cdrom
If you are vulnerable, you may have noticed by now that in addition to the HTML-escaped version of the code above, I have also included the real code itself in this entry. I did this to share the joy with you. And because I can be a real bastard that way.
Update: Removed the VBScript because pudge was apparently smart-enough to have the Slash code look for that kind of crap and fix it up.
