Office, Messenger updates
Microsoft's Mac Business Unit (MacBU) today released updates to Office 2004 as well as Messenger for Mac, bringing enhanced security and stability. Macworld reports that The 11.3.0 update for Office 2004 for Mac contains fixes for vulnerabilities that could allow an attacker to overwrite the contents of a vulnerable Mac's memory with malicious code. The Messenger 6.0.1 update fixes a sign-in issue. The updates are freely available via download from Microsoft's Mac business site. Microsoft earlier today also confirmed a previous report claiming that it doesn't expect to ship Mac Office 2007 until the second half of 2007, saying that the next version of its flagship office suite will bring an enhanced look and feel to match Mac OS X's interface evolution, as well as native support for Intel-based Macs as a Universal Binary.
