On Tuesday, June 9th, 2009, Microsoft released 17 security updates for Office in 3 bulletins addressing 11 security vulnerabilities. The security updates apply to the following products:
- Microsoft Office Excel 2000, 2002, 2003, 2007, Excel Viewer 2003, Excel Viewer, the Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack, the 2007 Microsoft Office System, and Excel Services in Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (32 bit, 64 bit), as described in security bulletin MS09-021.
- Microsoft Office Word 2000, 2002, 2003, 2007, Word Viewer 2003, the Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack, and the 2007 Microsoft Office System, as described in security bulletin MS09-027.
- Microsoft Office 2000, XP, and 2007, as described in security bulletin MS09-024.
Microsoft also released two updates to the Outlook 2003 and 2007 Junk Email Filter and an update to Outlook. The update to Outlook resolves an issue that occurs when you attempt to save after you edit a meeting request with Service Pack 2 installed. If certain fields, such as the list of meeting attendees, are edited, you will be prompted to either save and notify the meeting attendees or not save. If you choose not to save, your changes are lost. This update resolves that issue. The update, which will install successfully if either Service Pack 1 or Service Pack 2 is installed, also delivers many of the Outlook performance enhancements in Service Pack 2 to users who are not yet ready to install the service pack.
Starting August 1, 2009, Microsoft will discontinue support for Office Update and the Office Update Inventory Tool. To continue getting the latest updates for Microsoft Office products, use Microsoft Update. For more information see the FAQ.
