Malware wrapped in PowerPoint presentations

Open only expected presentations from known sources


There is a new attack method that uses PowerPoint presentations to infiltrate malware onto the computer. In this case, the reloading of the malware is already triggered by a single mouse movement after opening the file.

Therefore, special caution is required with PowerPoint files. Only open presentations that you have received from a known source and have expected to receive.
