Download Windows Updates: 01/09/07

Microsoft released three critical Windows patches on Jan. 9th that resolve multiple vulnerabilities. The patches address, amongst other issues, vulnerabilities in Excel, Outlook, and VML handling.

The vulnerabilities, if not patched, can allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code and compromise your computer.

These updates concern multiple versions of Windows including, but not limited to, Windows XP Professional SP2 and the Mac versions of the Office Suite. It is very important that you update your Windows operating system as soon as possible.
