Microsoft has released Microsoft Office 2011 14.2.2 and Office 2008 12.3.3, both of which fix “extremely important issues” and improve overall security. In particular, the updates patch vulnerabilities that an attacker can use to overwrite the contents of your computer’s memory with malicious code.

Copy Excel Selection as a Picture
Want to show someone a chunk of an Excel spreadsheet via email or iChat? You could take a screenshot, but if you want to show just a portion of the Excel window and you don't use a utility like Snapz Pro, you can do this right from within Excel 2008. Make a selection, hold down the Shift key, and choose Copy Picture from the Edit menu. You can select whether the selection will be rendered as though it was shown on screen or as though it was printed. Then just switch to your desired destination and paste.

Moving a message to another mailbox (or Gmail's Trash) generates a second spurious copy of the message in All Mail. Each subsequent move of the message creates yet another spurious copy.
It also will not let me rename a Gmail IMAP folder. After selecting 'Rename Folder', the normal highlighted text box shows but reverts before you have time to make changes.
Selecting a mailbox and pressing Command-Delete moves the whole mailbox and its messages to what looks like the Gmail Trash, but is not regarded as being within Trash by Gmail, which treats it as a separate Label.
These problems do not occur with Exchange Accounts.
