Windows Vista, Lync, older Office versions under attack via new vulnerability

Author: MurielSpeight | Filed under: About

Microsoft warned Tuesday that attackers are actively targeting Windows Vista, as well as Microsoft Office 2003 through 2010, with an attack that would give hackers the same rights as the victim. Microsoft’s Security Advisory 2896666  warns that Vista, the two Office versions, Windows Server 2008, and all versions of Lync are vulnerable, Microsoft warned in a blog post . “The exploit requires user interaction as the attack is disguised as an email requesting potential targets to open a specially crafted Word attachment,” Microsoft said.
