We've published several articles over the past few days detailing the latest IE flaw.  However, now one of our readers (thanks roseman) writes in with an article posted over on ComputerWorld.

Turns out that this bug is now being exploited through Word documents.  While this is basically a simple evolution of the exploit method, I imagine that this is only the first or second evolution.  There are more to come I am sure.  We don't have any samples of this malware yet, so if you have any, we'd like a few examples.
