Microsoft Word Unspecified Remote Code Execution Vulnerability

"Microsoft Word is prone to an unspecified remote code-execution
vulnerability.

Reports indicate that this issue can allow remote attackers to execute
arbitrary code on a vulnerable computer by supplying a malicious Word
document to a user. This issue is being actively exploited in the wild to
place a backdoor named Backdoor.Ginwui on targeted computers through a
trojan named Trojan.Mdropper.H.

Due to a lack of details, further information is not available at the
moment. This BID will be updated as more details become available."
