I don't use any Microsoft Office software (only the viewers), but my sister in law does, and Secunia PSI flagged Word, Excel, Powerpoint as 'insecure'. She gets her updates downloaded automatically from the Windows Update site. Would she perhaps need to "Upgrade" to Microsoft Updates to get the patches for these 'insecure' programs ? (The notebook came preinstalled with all this stuff in 2003.) Regards.
