Microsoft Outlook (on Windows) user? Upgrade now!

Brian Krebs posted his usual "Patch Tuesday" update for Fat Tuesday (yesterday, February 13th) and listed in there was a doozy, an email-client specific bug that I almost missed: "CVE-2024-21413, a critical remote code execution bug in Microsoft Office that could be exploited just by viewing a specially-crafted message in the Outlook Preview pane."

Brian points out today: "Microsoft has updated its security advisory for [this] critical Outlook bug they patched on Tuesday: They're now saying it's under active attack."

Not good. Be safe, and make sure you're up to date with latest versions and all security patches!
