Microsoft Office XP and Internet Explorer version 5 and later are configured to request to send debugging information to Microsoft in the event of a program crash. The debugging information includes a memory dump which may contain all or part of the document being viewed or edited. This debug message potentially could contain sensitive, private information.

PLATFORM:

Microsoft Office XP
Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 and later
Windows XP
Microsoft has indicated that this will be a feature of all new Microsoft products
