Microsoft has released security updates for Microsoft Office 2008 and Office 2004. Both updates fix vulnerabilities that could allow attackers to execute code remotely if you were to open a maliciously crafted Excel or Word file. Microsoft says that the update for Office 2008 also improves stability in Excel 2008 and resolves Entourage 2008 issues with Kerberos authentication and inadvertent duplication of items in Exchange 2007 mailboxes. The Office 2008 update requires Mac OS X 10.4.9 Tiger or later, while the Office 2004 update needs Mac OS X 10.2.8 Jaguar or later. (Free updates; the Office 2008 updater is 333 MB and the Office 2004 updater is 16 MB.)
Disable Caps Lock
If you find yourself pressing the Caps Lock key accidentally as much as I do, note that you can disable it entirely in Mac OS X. Open the Keyboard & Mouse preference pane, click the Modifier Keys button, and in the dialog that appears, select No Action from the Caps Lock pop-up menu. You could remap it to another modifier instead, but that might make using differently configured Macs more difficult.

After updating Office 2008 to V. 12.2.7, I discovered the link no longer appears. I can find no way to currently download embedded graphics into my emails.
Does anyone have answers, or is there a bug in Update 12.2.7? If not, is there a way to go back to Update 12.2.6?
