Hey everyone this is Alexandra Huft,

I wanted to let you know that we’ve been made aware of proof of concept code published publicly affecting Microsoft Office 2003 PowerPoint. We are currently investigating this report. The reported proof of concept may allow an attacker to execute code on a user’s machine by convincing them to open a specially-crafted PowerPoint file. We are not aware of any attacks attempting to use the reported vulnerability or of customer impact at this time.

As part of our investigation, we are working with our MSRA partners to monitor and secure the ecosystem.

Thanks,

Alexandra
