    "...Known issues in the November 8, 2005 release
    When you run the November 8, 2005 release of the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool from Windows Update, from Automatic Update, or from the Download Center, the tool may appear to stop responding. Additionally, you may experience one of the following symptoms:
    When you run the tool from Windows Update or from Automatic Update, Windows Task Manager shows that the Iexplore.exe process has high CPU usage.
    When you run the tool from the Download Center, Windows Task Manager shows that the Mrt.exe process has high CPU usage.
    To resolve this issue, install the updated version of the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool that is now available from Windows Update, from Microsoft Update, from Automatic Updates, or from the Download Center. An updated version of the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool was released on November 11, 2005.

    Exclamation (MS07-060) Word exploit loose

    FYI...

    - http://preview.tinyurl.com/2q4xop
    October 11, 2007 (Computerworld) - Security researchers spotted an attack yesterday that exploits a vulnerability in Microsoft Word patched just the day before. On Wednesday, Symantec Corp. reported it had obtained a suspicious Word document that crashed every version of the application except the newest, Word 2007, when opened. After it examined the document, Symantec found that the document included shell code and three pieces of malware. Among its more surprising findings: Symantec found that the document had been created with the edition of Word included with Office for Mac 2004. On Tuesday, Microsoft Corp. issued a patch that closed a critical vulnerability in multiple editions of the popular word processor, including Word 2000, Word XP and Word for the Mac. Symantec put the two together. "Taking a closer look at that vulnerability, we confirmed that this document was in fact exploiting the same vulnerability"... Updates to the Windows versions of Word can be obtained via Microsoft Update or Office Update..."
