SYMPTOMS

After you apply the hotfix in Knowledge Base article 828026, some URL script commands do not work as expected.

The update in this article also discusses an issue with the installer that can cause 100% CPU utilization in certain scenarios.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because of the following issues:
  • Content that was played back by a protocol other than HTTP was detected as originating in the Internet zone. Sometimes, this content should have been detected as originating in a more trusted zone.
  • URL script commands that were referenced by only a relative URL detected the URL script command as originating in the restricted zone. Sometimes, these script commands should have been detected as originating in a more trusted zone.
  • The SeDebugPrivilege user right has been revoked from all users and all groups, including administrators. This situation causes the installation process to use all CPU resources.
