Netiquette IQ - Email Security Advisory - Rich Text Format




From time to time, this blog has reported on relevant email and other security information. The following one is for email in RTF or Rich Text Format. This is critical for Outlook users.


Microsoft has released a security advisory for Microsoft Word. A vulnerability exists for remote code execution which could allow an attacker to gain user rights by opening a specifically crafted Rich Text Format file.
Applying the Microsoft Fix it solution will disable the opening of RTF content in Microsoft Word, preventing the exploitation of this vulnerability.
US-CERT recommends that users and administrators review Microsoft Security Advisory 2953095 and apply any necessary updates to help mitigate the risk.
