Office 2007 Security Alert
Users of Office 2007 running Windows Vista did not receive several of this months update patches, Microsoft Corpopration said last week when it acknowledged that its security update services had failed to deploy the fixes. “We have updated the detection logic for the May 8th security and non-security updates for Office 2007,” said Mark Griesi, a program manager with the Microsoft Security Response Center (MSRC), in an entry on the team’s blog. “In some cases, the original detection logic may not have offered the updates or the updates may not have been installed successfully on systems running Windows Vista,” Griesi added. The updates that failed to be deployed included ones for Excel 2007 and Office 2007 in general, all which were rated “important”, the second-highest ranking in Microsoft’ s four-level threat system.
