Word gets exploited

May 20th, 2006 by Patrick S

Internet Storm Center reported about a new zero-day Word vulnerability being used. It seems that it is indeed a Word DOC document that attempts to exploit a vulnerability in Word, in order to drop and execute a binary file that downloads a backdoor.

Both the shellcode used in the exploit as well as the binary part in the document are encoded in order to hide them.

More details about the backdoor is available in the W32/Ginwui.A description.
