    It says: Affects Word 2000/2002 and Office 2000/XP.

    I'm using Microsoft Office 2003 SP1, the latest version of Office! So, I'm not affected! :D :D :D

    Those people still using office XP, I recommend that they upgrade to Microsoft Office 2003.

    Solution:
    Open trusted documents only.

    For Internet Explorer users, documents on web sites can be opened automatically in the browser, unless the security level for the "Internet" security zone is set to "High" or the "File download" setting has been disabled.

    Fine for home environments. But with a few thousand naive users this is no option.

    Fine for home environments. But with a few thousand naive users this comes with a nice budget tag. No plans for upgrade yet...
