Microsoft Word Vulnerability

Posted by on in Alerts

Microsoft Word 2013 logoA vulnerability has been discovered in Microsoft Word that could allow malware to get into your system. Microsoft is working on a fix or this, but for at least the next couple of weeks be especially vigilant if you receive a Microsoft Word attachment from someone that you don't know.

If you get a document from someone that you do know that you were not expecting, it is a good idea to check with them and make sure that they sent it. It only takes a minute to check versus the hours to clean up and the possible loss of data if something gets through.

This is a good reminder that it's a cruel digital world out there so definitely don't click on links or attachments from anyone you don't know, and view with suspicion any links or attachments from someone you do know that you were not expecting (especially those that are asking for you to pay an invoice or transfer money). WestonBlock and our antivirus software should block most of these but nothing beats plain old vigilance.

More technical info on the Microsoft Word vulnerability for those of you interested can be found here
