Journal whitehatlurker's Journal: PowerPoint ZeroDay Vulnerability Exploited

Another MicroSoft Office unpatched ("zero day") vulnerability is being exploited in a Chinese-language PowerPoint presentation. (The topic of this presentation is sex.)

Several articles are available online about this, some pointing out that MicroSoft has been patching Office heavily in the past short while. The Washington Post remarks that "And if all of this Office craziness has you spooked, you might consider switching over to OpenOffice."

Note that OpenOffice was recently patched to fix security holes. (So it is secure for a while.)
