In a security advisory, Microsoft has warned that malicious hackers are exploiting an unpatched vulnerability in Windows to launch targeted attacks against organisations.

 

The security hole, dubbed CVE-2021-40444, is a previously unknown remote code execution vulnerability in MSHTML, a core component of Windows which helps render web-based content.

 

According to Microsoft, attacks exploiting the vulnerability have targeted companies via boobytrapped Microsoft Office documents.
