MS Office 11.3.8 update
Microsoft on Tuesday quietly posted another security update to its Office 2004 for Mac suite. Office 2004 for Mac 11.3.8 Update, the company said, fixes "a vulnerability in Word 2004 that an attacker can use to overwrite the contents of your computer's memory with malicious code." In addition, the update also includes several other unspecified improvements to improve security and stability, according to the release notes. The 9.1MB update requires that users install Office 2004 11.3.7 update, which was released in mid-August. Last month the company announced its Office 2008 for Mac product line-up, which will bring both native operation on Intel-based Macs as well as XML file format compatibility when it is available on January 15th.
