For what it's worth, these are the file types used in MS PowerPoint:

PPS and PPT are still the most widely used and those ending with an X are compressed files. In your general search it might therefore be worth also looking for security issues associated with these file types as well as the PowerPoint program itself. This could yield additional information that you can then piece together.

Also look into PowerPoint Macros (Macros being small programs that can be created when producing presentations). This is an area where there could be additional security issues.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Asking others to do your homework for you is not the way to learn, and it is frowned upon on this site. Have you tried Google?

Is the OP asking us to his homework for him or is he doing his own homework by researching the subject of his presentation?

He could do his research via Google and Wikipedia (if allowed as a source), he could ask Security Specialists at Microsoft and he could ask actual users of the application in question by posting in various forums.

Isn't researching all available resources the best way to gather the information required to put the presentation together?

Maybe the best way to tackle this is to first use Google or Wikipedia to try to learn as much general information about the topic as you can. Once you have done this you will then have more definite questions to ask this or any other appropriate forum. Most forums will gladly answer questions that are more specific.

It would mean that you have researched to topic and have sought help with details, which is probably quite acceptable to those who set the assignment.
