This month there is a brand new, zero day, Word exploit.  The document comes as an email attachment, and when it is opened a Trojan is installed.  The Trojan will capture passwords, bank account details etc.

Steps to take:


How the word exploit works.

The attack works against Office 2016 on Windows 10 and earlier. The first observed attack was in late January. Recipients of the attack document see a Word file in Microsoft’s Rich Text Format (RTF), however if you open the file, the exploit will connect to a remote server and fetch an executable .hta file containing HTLM application content. The .hta executable contains malicious script written in Microsoft’s Visual Basic. The successful exploit closes the bait Word document, and pops up a fake one to show to you. In the background, the malware has already been stealthily installed on your computer.
