New Trojan Targets Vulnerable Microsoft Office® Users

April 10, 2015  Malware News

Security software company Symantec® reports a new malware program named Trojan.Laziok arrives in emails and exploits a vulnerability in Microsoft Office® that actually should have been patched by users back in April 2012.

The best solution to avoid this new Trojan invader is to verify if the 3-year-old patch has been applied, and if not, do it now.
