      'Description'    => %q{
        This is a memory corruption bug found in Microsoft Internet Explorer. On IE 9,
        it seems to only affect certain releases of mshtml.dll. For example: This module
        can be used against version 9.0.8112.16446, but not for 9.0.8112.16421. IE 8
        requires a different way to trigger the vulnerability, but not currently covered
        by this module.

        The issue is specific to the browser's IE7 document compatibility, which can be
        defined in X-UA-Compatible, and the content editable mode must be enabled. An
        "onmove" event handler is also necessary to be able to trigger the bug, and the
        event will be run twice before the crash. The first time is due to the position
        change of the body element, which is also when a MSHTML!CFlatMarkupPointer::`vftable'
        object is created during a "SelectAll" command, and this object will be used later
        on for the crash. The second onmove event seems to be triggered by a InsertButton
        (or Insert-whatever) command, which is also responsible for the free of object
        CFlatMarkupPointer during page rendering. The EnsureRecalcNotify() function will
        then still return an invalid reference to CFlatMarkupPointer (stored in EBX), and
        then passes this on to the next functions (GetLineInfo -> QIClassID).  When this
        reference arrives in function QIClassID, an access violation finally occurs when
        the function is trying to call QueryInterface() with the bad reference, and this
        results a crash. Successful control of the freed memory may leverage arbitrary code
        execution under the context of the user.

        Note: It is also possible to see a different object being freed and used, doesn't
        always have to be CFlatMarkupPointer.
