Can anyone verify this?:

Symantec reported that there is a new 0day vulnerability in Microsoft Office Excel (other versions may be affected as well).Symantec is saying that the vulnerability is being exploited by a variant of the Mdropper trojan, which they are calling Trojan.Mdropper.AC.
There is no patch for the vulnerability yet and the only workaround available at the moment is to not open Office documents from untrusted sources.

The exploit involving Mdropper is not new:
Microsoft Excel 0-day Vulnerability FAQ
MDropper Trojan - Exploits Zero Day vulnerability

Trojan.Mdropper.AC appears to be the latest variant.
