Vulnerability in Exchange/OWA
Microsoft published recently security bulletin MS06-029, which describes a new vulnerability that can affect Exchange Server 2000 and 2003. This vulnerability could allow script injection when Exchange Server runs Outlook Web Access. An attacker could exploit the vulnerability by constructing an e-mail message with a specially crafted script. If this specially crafted script is run, it would execute in the security context of the user on the client. More information in the following links:
