"Microsoft on Friday issued a Security Advisory stating that it is investigating limited attempts to exploit a vulnerability in the Windows Shell.
The zero-day vulnerability was disclosed last week by Belorussian antivirus company, VirusBlokAda. It takes advantage of Windows shortcut files by making them execute automatically when accessed from a USB drive via Windows Explorer."
Why anyone is still using Microsoft products is still beyond me. Might as well leave all the doors in your house open and place a sign in your front yard listing your name, DOB, SSN, bank accounts, credit cars and a nice little "Come in at take everything you want" message.
