Microsoft has released new security updates for its Mac Office products: Office 2004 for Mac 11.2.6 Update and Office v.

The update applies to Office v. X, Microsoft Word X for Mac, Microsoft Excel X for Mac, Microsoft PowerPoint X for Mac, Microsoft Entourage X for Mac as well as the current Office 2004 products, including the Standard Edition, Student and Teacher Edition, Professional Edition, Word 2004 for Mac, Excel 2004 for Mac, PowerPoint 2004 for Mac, and Entourage 2004 for Mac.
