Death by PowerPoint?

Here’s another reason to avoid PowerPoint presentations, other than the fear of falling asleep halfway through. A new virus is doing the rounds that installs key logging software should you open a PPT attachment.

According to the brave souls in Asia that have opened the attachment the file is supposed to contain “18 humorous slides about love between men and women”. In fact it has a key logger that will record all of your key strokes with a view to working out your passwords.

There is no known cure at the moment, so beware emails bearing PPT attachments. Microsoft reckon they will sort it out by 8th August when their next updates are due.
