We’ve received two new trojan droppers exploiting the talked about MSWord 2000 0-day vulnerability. These trojans will be detected as TROJ_MDROPPER.BT and TROJ_MDROPPER.BS in the upcoming urgent Official Pattern Release. The discovery of the new trojan malwares is alarming. It is very probable that new malwares will be exploiting the said vulnerability until it is given a security patch.
For now, it is advised that users regularly update their anti-virus pattern files to be protected from new malwares discovered in the wild.
