Description:   Several vulnerabilities were reported in Microsoft Internet Explorer. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system.

A certain property method can be exploited to cause remote code execution [CVE-2007-0945].

Certain HTML objects can be exploited to cause remote code execution [CVE-2007-0946, CVE-2007-0947].

The 'mdsauth.dll' component of Microsoft Windows Media Server can be exploited to overwrite arbitrary files [CVE-2007-2221].
