Submission + - Microsoft Warns of Excel Zero-Day Attack

greyMatter writes: "eWEEK has a story about a new, undocumented vulnerability in Microsoft's Excel spreadsheet program that is being used to launch computer attacks against specific targets, according to a warning from the software maker. The vulnerability, rated "extremely critical" by Secunia, is being exploited to load a keylogger Trojan on select targets, according to an anti-virus analyst tracking the latest attack. From the article: The attackers are using booby-trapped Excel documents, sent by e-mail to the target's mailbox. If a rigged .xls document is launched, the exploit happens silently in the background, infecting the machine with a Trojan downloader that opens a backdoor and waits for instructions from a server controlled by the attacker."
