Microsoft is investigating the report of a flaw that could open systems using its Access or Office software up to attack.Published: April 12, 2005, 4:43 PM PDT By Ina Fried Staff Writer, CNET News.com The vulnerability, which was not one of eight patched by Microsoft on Tuesday, is in the Jet database engine component, according to an advisory posted the same day by security company Secunia. It could enable an intruder to remotely execute malicious code on a vulnerable PC, Secunia said. Microsoft has not confirmed the existence of the security hole, which potentially affects software including Microsoft Office and the Microsoft Access database program. Secunia rated the problem "highly critical," noting that exploit code for the flaw had been shared on a public mailing list.
The only easy day was yesterday.
