This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of Microsoft Internet Explorer. User interaction is required to exploit this vulnerability in that the target must visit a malicious page or open a malicious file.

The specific flaw exists within the handling of the accessor function for the stack trace property descriptor. The issue lies in the failure to ensure that the 'this' parameter is an object and not a native integer. An attacker can leverage this vulnerability to execute code within the context of the current process.
