    Microsoft Internet Explorer Scrollbar-Base-Color Partial Denial Of
    Service Vulnerability

    http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/8874/discussion/

    "It has been reported that Microsoft Internet Explorer is prone to a
    vulnerability that may allow an attacker to cause a denial of service
    condition in the software. The problem occurs due to improper
    handling of scrollbar-base-color attribute of the div object.

    Successful exploitation of this issue may allow an attacker to create
    a webpage containing malicious script code that would cause a user's
    browser to crash upon visiting the site.

    Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 has been reported to be vulnerable to
    this issue, however other versions may be affected as well."
