PC Games/Hardware/Microsoft
ZDNet has the usual: Office 2007's out, and there are a number of 0-day security exploits being used to attack Windows systems.

Surprisingly, however, Office 2007 is unaffected; these bugs are in the older versions of Office.

Confirmed vulnerable: Microsoft Office 2000, Microsoft Office XP, Microsoft Office 2003, Microsoft Office 2004 for Mac, and Microsoft Office 2004 v. X for Mac.

The vulnerability cannot be exploited on Office 2007 or on Works 2004, 2005, or 2006.

This is the fourth known zero-day attack against the ever-present Microsoft Office suite since early December 2006. The three previous attacks, all aimed directly at specific targets, used rigged Microsoft Word .doc files.
