CVE Number Vulnerability Product Severity Date
CVE-2017-0210 Microsoft Internet Explorer Elevation of Privilege Vulnerability Microsoft Internet Critical 12-04-2017

Technical Information

Brief overview of the risk:
An elevation of privilege vulnerability exists when Internet Explorer does not properly enforce cross-domain policies, which could allow an attacker to access information from one domain and inject it into another domain.
Detailed Information on the risk:
In a web-based attack scenario, an attacker could host a website that is used to attempt to exploit the vulnerability. In addition, compromised websites and websites that accept or host user-provided content could contain specially crafted content that could exploit the vulnerability. In all cases, however, an attacker would have no way to force users to view the attacker-controlled content. Instead, an attacker would have to convince users to take action. For example, an attacker could trick users into clicking a link that takes them to the attacker’s site. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could elevate privileges in affected versions of Internet Explorer.Further information on this exploit is available at : CVE-2017-0210
