Microsoft Patches Multiple Excel Flaws

Microsoft rolled out two patches for vulnerabilities as part of its monthly Patch Tuesday effort, fixing six vulnerabilities in Microsoft Office, and a less significant but still dangerous flaw within Windows.

The patch dealing with the Office vulnerability contained fixes for five issues within Excel, including malformed range, file format parsing, description, graphic and record flaws. In each case, an attacker could take complete control of an affected system if the user was logged in as an administrator. BetaNews | Microsoft Patches Multiple Excel Flaws
