    This update addresses a flaw in the way Microsoft Office uses Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) to check document properties when opening a maliciously crafted document. This flaw could allow arbitrary code to run when a user opened a specially crafted document from an attacker. This update addresses that vulnerability so that files opened using VBA are handled appropriately.

    For more information on this update, see the Microsoft Knowledge Base article: (822035) Overview of Office 2000 Security Patch.
