Microsoft Internet Explorer contains a flaw that is triggered as user-supplied input is not properly sanitized when handling CTreeNode objects. This will result in a type confusion between a CTreeNode object and an ISpanQualifier instance, which will cause a use-after-free error that will corrupt memory. This may allow a remote attacker to cause a loss of availability for the system or potentially allow the attacker to execute arbitrary code.
