SophosLabs Released Free Tool to Validate Microsoft Shortcut

I read this on the Internet Storm Center yesterdaySophos has released a tool that will provide detection against the Windows shortcut exploit announced last week (originally being used to exploit Siemens SCADA machines).  Be careful, this is a nasty vulnerability with a large scope — the entire Windows family of OS going back to NT as far I’m aware.  If you want to play with the vulnerability yourself it has to be added to Metasploit — thanks hd!

SophosLabs has made a video available on what is the exploit and how the tool works here and the tool is available for downloaded here.
