Traps 4.0.2 can it protect against MS DDE attacks?

L0 Member

My security manager just recieved this latest MS advisory:


Malware exploits carried out using the DDE auto update feature imbedded in most Office documents. Microsoft have not announced any plans for a fix and currently the only work around is to disable the feature with a registry hack.


Question: Can Traps Wildfire or local anaylsis effectively protect against this new type of fileless exploit?
