    EX2K Security patch executable file (EX2K)

    I saw one thread that raised a question about the version of Excel their system indicated after installing the patch. I have not yet run the executable that I just downloaded, but I'm a little bit concerned the file name is e2kmac.exe. ??? mac? Should I be concerned about running this, or am I just being paranoid?

    Mac in this case is short for Macro not Macintosh!

    The file E2KMAC.EXE is the patch for Excel 2000's newest (?) macro vulnerability.
