Default Trojan rides in on unpatched Office

A new Trojan horse exploits an unpatched flaw in Microsoft Office and could let an attacker commandeer vulnerable computers, security experts have warned.

For the full story read it directly from the Source.

Just goes to show you sometimes a unpatched system is not a good thing. Glad i keep my system up to date.

a general rule of thumb with unpatched systems is don't use real one player (as it rely on IE) or any MS products and if you have a A/V, spyware and firewall you will be fine
