      IE 11 copy/paste problem

      It has come to our attention that people using Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) are having trouble with copy/paste to the forum. If you encounter this problem, using a different browser like Firefox or Chrome seems to get around the problem. We do not know what the problem is, but it seems to be specific to IE 11 and we are hopeful that Microsoft will eventually fix it.

How to disable the ADODB.Stream object from Internet Explorer

 

An ADO stream object contains methods for reading and writing binary files and text files. When an ADO stream object is combined with known security vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer, a Web site could execute scripts from the Local Machine zone. To help protect your computer from this kind of attack, you can manually modify your registry.

 

INTRODUCTION

An ADO stream object represents a file in memory. The stream object contains several methods for reading and writing binary files and text files. When this by-design functionality is combined with known security vulnerabilities in Microsoft Internet Explorer, an Internet Web site could execute script from the Local Machine zone. This behavior occurs because the ADODB.Stream object permits access to the hard disk when the ADODB.Stream object is hosted in Internet Explorer.

 

MORE INFORMATION

Any line-of-business Web application that requires a file to be loaded or to be saved to the hard disk may use the ADODB.Stream object in Internet Explorer. For example, if an intranet server hosts a form that an employee must download and fill out, the ADODB.Stream object is used to obtain the file and to save the file locally. After the user edits the file locally and submits the file back to the server, the ADODB.Stream object is used to read the file from the local hard disk and to send the file back to the server.

 

We strongly recommend that you use different methods to provide this functionality. For example, you may use an application or a control that requires the user to deliberately access the hard disk.
