Phishing trojan in Microsoft documents has mouseover vulnerability

Trend Micro reports a version of malware possible in Microsoft documents (specifically PowerPoint) where infection is possible merely by passing a cursor over a link in the document without clicking it.

It’s called OTLARD/Gootkit.  It seems to be spread mainly by phishing attacks to companies where employees are likely to be fooled by official-looking emails.
