Vnunet reported concerns about a flaw in Microsoft PowerPoint that may be exploited by malware writers.

The post adds that:

“This PowerPoint exploit is in the wild right now,” said Graham Cluley, senior technology consultant at Sophos. “It comes in the form of a presentation showing naked Japanese girls bathing in rockpools, or as an IQ test, to lure the user in. We’re hoping Microsoft will patch this soon.”
