Worst about it, I haven't seen a fix come up yet. Mickeysoft doesn't even
mention the problem (their latest "security" message about IE is from
January). Although it's very similar to the other buffer overrun problems
recently -- you could probably even exploit it to execute malignant code on
the reader's machine. "Good Times" for Eudora users ;-).
