Stability and security update for Office 2008 for Mac
Microsoft has released an update for Office 2008 for Mac. The "Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac 12.2.8 Update" is a 332.8 MB download and principally provides a fix for an error in Entourage, the email and calendar application. According to the update description, the flaw can lead to irregular crashes when sending mail, when receiving mail with attachments and when accepting meeting invitations.
The update also includes fixes for critical security holes that Microsoft say could allow attackers to overwrite memory contents with malicious code. Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac was last updated in November and is not affected by this current update.
