Shortest crash of IE yet

http://www.securityfocus.com/archive/1/319360/2003-04-20/2003-04-26/0 is reporting on a painfully simple snippet of code that crashes Internet Explorer. It doesn’t appear to open the door to any exploits, but still… pretty pitiful. Trustworthy Computing, eh? Not there just yet.

Since it crashes IE, and IE is a component in applications like Outlook FrontPage and the Visual FoxPro Task Pane Manager, the code will crash those applications as well.
