Yet a new Outlook weakness

As if Microsoft didn’t do enough damage yet! A new flaw in Outlook appeared – this time, it is enough to receive a message, to get infected. No, this is no hoax. The idea is to abuse some fields of the message header (subject line, date, sender, etc.). These fields are parsed, even if the user doesn’t open the message. The “right” header field will break Outlook, allowing malicious code being executed on the user’s computer.
