    @ Ed – The updates are cumulative. The latest update contains all the updates – security and non-security- which were released for that component.

    @ Charles King – We have noticed this, but could not repro that it causes problems.

    @Dan – The update/patch targets all supported versions of Office 2007. Office 2007 SP3 may not be affected by the particular vulnerability, but will still be patched.

  4. Ed says:

    Do the non-security updates replace any previous updates?

  5. Charles King says:

    Appears to download the 32-bit KB255348 twice on 64-bit OS machines. Screws up outlook. Un-installing one or both of them will resolve the issue.

  6. Ed says:

    Is the OSC an update or can it be used as a new install?

    Getting a bit odd since the OSC installer is under 5MB and this update is about 13MB.

    The KB doesn't mention if it replaces previous updates either.

  7. Dan says:

    I'm running Office 2007 SP3 and Microsoft Update is offering KB2596871 as a High-priority update. The KB article has Office 2007 SP3 listed as non-affected software.  What gives?
