Exploit Thursday – this months winner – Powerpoint



The SecurityFix reminds us of what usually comes close behind Patch Tuesday…. exploit Wednesday or Thursday and this month, the exploits seemed to start coming out Thursday. There’s a new Powerpoint exploit starting to make the rounds right on the heels of Patch day. The main goal is likely to get the most mileage out of the exploit before the NEXT patch Tuesday. Microsoft is reported to be investigating the reports of this vulnerability.


Unfortunately it sounds like the office update site is still having problems dealing out the October updates. “Technical difficulty” error messages.
