Microsoft Office Zero-Day Was Used By Government Hackers To Hit Russian Targets

A major security vulnerability in Microsoft Word that was patched yesterday was used by a group of government hackers to infect Russian victims with malware, according to security firm FireEye.

According to FireEye, attackers leveraging a piece of malware known as LATENTBOT used the same vulnerability in Microsoft Word to swipe user credentials, and were likely financially motivated.
