New exploit in Microsoft Word can allow for infections

January 3, 2011

Microsoft announced last week that hackers are exploiting a known vulnerability in Microsoft Word.  The vulnerability is found in versions 2002, 2003, 2007 and 2010 and was fixed by Microsoft in November.

The exploit simply requires someone to open an infected Word document which will then download and install the spyware. To load the update (plus any other pending ones) simply run Windows Update.
