Microsoft to Patch Word Vulnerability Targeted in Attacks

 

Microsoft announced plans today to release four security bulletins as part of next week's Patch Tuesday update, including one aimed at a critical vulnerability in Microsoft Word.

 

According to Microsoft, the Word vulnerability has been observed being exploited in attacks against Word 2010 users and can be leveraged to remotely execute code if the user opens a specially-crafted RTF file or previews that file in Microsoft Outlook using Word as the email viewer.

 

"The update provided through MS14-017 fully addresses the Microsoft Word issue first described in Security Advisory 2953095," blogged Dustin Childs, group manager of response communications for Microsoft Trustworthy Computing. "This advisory also included a Fix it to disable opening rich-text format (RTF) files within Microsoft Word. Once the security update is applied, you should disable the Fix it to ensure RTF files will again render normally. At this time, we are still only aware of limited, targeted attacks directed at Microsoft Word 2010."

Thanks TH...looks like a very light Patch Tuesday. It'd be good if this topic could be "pinned", even temporarily, so as it may remain on the News ticker, at least until Tuesday?

Sounds good - let me know if I forget.  Or if you post every week then I'll just unfloat the old one and float the new one.
