    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."
