Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 7:50 pm

Microsoft Office isn’t the only word-processing software at risk of zero-day hacker attacks.

According to a warning from anti-virus vendor Symantec, attackers are exploiting a previously undocumented vulnerability in Ichitaro, a word processor produced by Justsystems, a Japanese software company.

Ichitaro, which is widely used by central and local governments as well as educational institutions in Japan, is the main product sold by Justsystems.
