    MS patch for mysterious macro vulnerability

    Hi, all. New on technet this morning is <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/ms01-034.asp>this article</A> announcing a patch to Words 97, 2000 (SR1/SP2 required) and 2002 (and 98 and 2001 for Mac). For security reasons, I suspect, MS hasn't explained how to exploit the vulnerability, so it's impossible to know whether it is something most anyone could do to you, or just another hypothetical possibility. No word on whether the miscreants now can bypass the "shift" key.

    (I should add, this board has gotten pretty fancy while I was away.)

    Welcome back. We're 'right proud of all the work Mum has done on the board.

    I checked the article and do find it "intriguing." But think I'll await the new WOW to see what Woody has to say (envision favorite chicken graphic). <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
