Vulnerability CVE-2006-2900


Published: 2006-06-07   Modified: 2012-02-12

Description:
Internet Explorer 6 allows user-assisted remote attackers to read arbitrary files by tricking a user into typing the characters of the target filename in a text box and using the OnKeyDown, OnKeyPress, and OnKeyUp Javascript keystroke events to change the focus and cause those characters to be inserted into a file upload input control, which can then upload the file when the user submits the form.
