Microsoft warns for PowerPoint OLE 0-day

Security Advisory 3010060 provides additional protections regarding limited, targeted attacks directed at Microsoft Windows customers. A cyberattacker could cause remote code execution if someone is tricked into opening a maliciously-crafted PowerPoint document that contains an infected Object Linking and Embedding (OLE) file.

Microsoft has included a one-click Fix it solution to address the known vulnerability. The Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET) also helps to defend against this cyberattack when configured to work with Microsoft Office software.

Read on at Microsoft Security Response Center, Microsoft Security Advisory 3010060 and KB 3010060.

Don’t forget to install patches, update and configure EMET.
