This signature detects attempts to exploit a memory corruption vulnerability in Microsoft Internet Explorer which could result in remote code execution.

Additional Information

Microsoft Internet Explorer is a web browser available for multiple platforms.

Microsoft Internet Explorer is prone to a memory-corruption vulnerability. The issue occurs because the application accesses an object in memory that has been deleted or has not been properly allocated.

Attackers can exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code in the context of the currently logged-in user. Failed attacks will cause denial-of-service conditions.
