Description Josh Bressers 2006-02-23 09:56:36 EST
Possible XSS in MagicHTML (IE only)

(Text taken from the above URL)
The MagicHTML filter for incoming HTML email did not correctly
disregard comments (/* */) inserted in style sheets ("u/* */rl"). It
also accepted "u\rl" as "url" in styles. These allow a malicious user         to break the privacy of the user by having them request an item from a
remote site when reading the mail. This happens only in browsers that
parse this invalid style, only one known is Internet Explorer.
