Microsoft is continuing its investigation of the scope and impact of this threat, and will most likely issue an update to patch this vulnerability at some point in the near future. In the meantime, you should follow the advice from security experts shared in this article. For additional protection, you can also apply the Microsoft Fix It solution. The Fix It solution only addresses Microsoft PowerPoint, though (with the exception of 64-bit PowerPoint on x64-based versions of Windows 8 or Windows 8.1), so you should still use caution and not consider the Fix It a comprehensive fix for this flaw.
