DOS vulnerability on Internet Browser

While contributing to the OSVDB. I notice about the recent DoS (Denial of Service) vulnerability on the Internet Browser and decided to research on it.

Internet Browser such as IE and Firefox contains a flaw that may allow a remote denial of service. The vulnerability can be triggered when processing a web page with a large number of various invalid request such as NNTP, NEWS and Mailto. This may cause the system to crash due to high resources consumption.

I have tested on some of these exploits. Test at your own risk.

Affected Browser: Internet Explorer, FireFox, Chrome, Opera, etc
OSVDB: 65110
Exploit Code: Download
