Evil Clippy Makes Malicious Office Docs that Dodge Detection.
Security researchers brought to life and released a wicked variant of Clippy, the recently resurfaced assistant
in Microsoft Office that we all loved so much to hate, that makes it

Clippy, the tool modifies Office documents at file format level to spew
out malicious versions that get by the static
analysis of antivirus engines and even utilities for manual inspection
of macro scripts.
