Microsoft delivers mega PowerPoint patch

As expected, Microsoft today patched a six week-old critical vulnerability in PowerPoint, the presentation maker that’s part of the popular Office suite, using a single security update. But that one update patched 14 separate vulnerabilities, 11 of which were rated “critical,” Microsoft highest threat ranking.

Also, while Microsoft patched all still-supported Windows editions of Office — including Office 2000, Office XP, Office 2003 and Office 2007 — it was not able to complete fixes for the three vulnerabilities that also affect Office 2004 and Office 2008 on Macs. Fixes for those editions were not ready, the company said.
