According to "zdnet", researchers at network security company Fireeye have identified a zero-day exploit of Internet Explorer on a breached web site.
The specific exploit targets the English versions of Internet Explorer 7 and 8 on Windows XP and IE8 on Windows 7. FireEye says their analysis indicates that the vulnerability behind it affects IE 7, 8, 9 and 10.
There are two vulnerabilities involved in the attack: the first is an information disclosure vulnerability which the exploit uses to retrieve the timestamp from the PE headers of msvcrt.dll (part of the Microsoft Visual C++ runtime). The second is an IE out-of-bounds memory access vulnerability, used to achieve code execution.
Many versions of msvcrt.dll are in distribution, so the exploit sends the timestamp back to the attacker's server, which returns an out-of-bounds exploit specific to the user's version.
FireEye is in working with Microsoft on researching the attack. The report says that the vulnerability can be mitigated using Microsoft's Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET) 4.0, presumably focusing on msvcrt.dll. Be careful, as you will likely have multiple copies of multiple versions of this DLL on your system.
