This patch addresses vulnerability in Microsoft Internet Explorer that could allow Hackers and con artists to display a fake URL in the address and status bars. The vulnerability is caused due to an input validation error, which can be exploited by including the '%01' and '%00' URL encoded representations after the username and right before the '@' character in an URL. Successful exploitation allows a malicious person to display an arbitrary FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name) in the address and status bars, which is different from the actual location of the page. This can be exploited to trick users into divulging sensitive information or download and execute malware on their systems, because they trust the faked domain in the two bars.
