Zero-Day Microsoft PowerPoint Vulnerability
Symantec is reporting a zero-day PowerPoint exploit. Right now the threat assessment is low, but that could change overnight if someone writes an automatic worm that takes advantage of this vulnerability.
Note that the vulnerability appeared in the wild days after "Patch Tuesday," presumably to maximize the window of exposure before Microsoft issues a patch.
