    Not sure if it already got posted...just saw it on Reddit

    http://finance.yahoo.com/news/microsoft-word-under-hack-attack-184132816.html

    Excerpt:

    "Microsoft Corp. on Monday issued an emergency security warning saying that hackers have found a way to booby-trap certain common Word files with the .rtf extension.

    Microsoft says it's aware of attacks going on now, but there's no fix yet to stop the hackers. It's working on a way to stop the bug.

    The only way to be sure your computer won't get infected is not to open a document with the .rtf file extension until Microsoft says it's fine to do so."

    Fire your broker, he's lying to you.
