Microsoft Internet Explorer for Macintosh could allow remote AppleScript execution
|ie-mac-applescript-execution (8851)||High Risk|
Microsoft Internet Explorer could allow a remote attacker to execute any known AppleScript on a victim's computer. A remote attacker could create a malicious Web page that calls a known AppleScript using the HTML file:// directive. Once a victim views the malicious Web page with an affected Web browser, the AppleScript would be executed.
