An unpatched bug in Microsoft's PowerPoint presentation maker is being exploited by an in-the-wild attack, Symantec researchers said Thursday...If the "zero-day" attack is successful, the hacker gains complete control of the compromised computer. The attack is carried out by a Trojan horse with the moniker "PPDDropper.b"* which hides inside a malicious PowerPoint file attached to an e-mail with a Google Gmail return address. PPDDropper.b, in turn, drops a backdoor component, dubbed "Bifrose.e" by Symantec. Bifrose.e then injects a malicious routine into Windows' EXLORER.EXE process, and overwrites the malformed PowerPoint file with a new, clean presentation document...
