Microsoft Confirms New Word Zero Day Attack

There's another Microsoft Word zero day attack under way. Microsoft on Sept. 5 confirmed that malicious attackers are exploiting a new, undocumented flaw in Word 2000 to load back-door Trojans on Windows machines.

The acknowledgment follows a warning from anti-virus vendor Symantec that the threat was detected in the wild targeting Windows 2000, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows NT, Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP systems.Microsoft Confirms New Word Zero-Day Attack
