    "Virus writers have created a Trojan which uses an unpatched vulnerability
    in Microsoft Office to take over Windows PCs. The Hesive Trojan can be
    disguised as a Microsoft Access file. Once opened in Access, infected .mdb
    files take advantage of a five-month old buffer overflow flaw in
    Microsoft's Jet Database Engine software to seize control of vulnerable
    machines."
