Comment 2 Josh Bressers 2008-09-23 14:19:38 EDT
From MFSA 2008-43:
Microsoft developer Dave Reed reported that certain BOM characters are
stripped from JavaScript code before it is executed. This can lead to code,
which would otherwise be treated as part of a quoted string, to be
executed. The issue could potentially be used by an attacker to bypass or
evade script filters and perform an XSS attack.
