Internet Explorer Security Zone Bypass

It’s possible to bypass the security zones within Internet Explorer. An issue has been identified in the way that security policies are applied when a URI is specified in the UNC form: \\MACHINE_NAME_OR_IP\PATH_TO_RESOURCE’. When a URI like this is accessed remotely, Internet Explorer does not apply the correct Security Zone Permissions. This issue affects Internet Explorer 5,6 and 7 under all versions of Windows.
Microsoft has released a work around for this issue. The work around can be found in Microsoft’s techbulletin for this issue.
