Two separate attack campaigns exploited the same Microsoft zero-day vulnerability to infect users with spyware and crimeware.

The security hole known as CVE-2017-0199 first made headlines in early April.

Microsoft patched the vulnerability in its Patch Tuesday on 11 April 2017. Even so, those Dridex campaigns are still sending fake photocopier documents to unsuspecting users at this time.
