Office 2008 for Mac 12.2.3 fixes stability, security issues

updated 11:35 am EST, Wed November 11, 2009

Also makes tweaks to specific features

Microsoft has posted a fresh update for Office 2008 for Mac, v12.2.3. The patch primarily addresses stability problems, such as one affecting the entire suite which could result in application crashes after a program was opened. Several unique crash scenarios have been fixed in Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Document Connection. Security has also been upgraded, closing a hole which could be used to overwrite memory with malicious code.

Other bugfixes target functionality, for instance ensuring proper text spacing when a Windows Office document with an attached metafile is opened. Excel's Workday option now properly excludes weekends and holidays, and Entourage has been given updated timezones and junk mail filters. A number of changes have been made to Document Connection, for instance binding Refresh to Command-R, and allowing the msn.com domain to connect to Office Live Workspace. Passwords for HTTPS sites should be properly kept in the keychain.

The update is a 350MB download, and can only be used with copies of Office for Mac that have already been updated to Mac Service Pack 1.
