Subject: AW: Security issue in Microsoft Outlook


I cannot reproduce this using Outlook 2003. I tried it in several ways (overwriting, inserting and deleting). The link always leads to the site which is shown as link.

Betreff: Security issue in Microsoft Outlook

An issue has been discovered in MS Outlook (All
Versions) where anyone can fake a URL & send it across.

How does it work:

Lets compose an email in MS Outlook, lets type & put a space after it to make it a link. Now put your cursor just before cybertrion & type any URL for eg: now send it to anyone. The receiver will see the URL as but when he clicks on it it will directly take him to

I am not sure how critical this is but it can fool alot of people & result in download of a virus.
