Outlook Vulnerability Exploited
U.S. Cyber Command recently issued a tweet concerning an Outlook vulnerability being exploited by cybercriminals.
CVE-2017-11774, or The Microsoft Outlook Security Feature Bypass Vulnerability, was addressed by Microsoft in October 2017, when their security update corrected how the software handles objects in memory.
It appears hackers are still abusing the Outlook bug, breaking free from the Outlook sandbox and unleashing malicious code.
