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

A remote user can create specially crafted VBScript or an ActiveX control marked as "save for initialization" embedded within an application or Office document that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger an object handling flaw and execute arbitrary code on the target system [CVE-2016-0002]. The code will run with the privileges of the target user.

An anonymous contributor (via VeriSign iDefense Labs) reported this vulnerability.

A remote user that can exploit a separate vulnerability to execute arbitrary code can cause the code to run with elevated privileges on the target system [CVE-2016-0005].

Impact:   A remote user can create content that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target user's system.

A remote user that can exploit a separate vulnerability can gain elevated privileges on the target system.
