Microsoft has updated Office 2011 to version 14.3.8, a maintenance release that’s focused solely on tightening security. According to the relevant security bulletin, the update addresses two privately reported vulnerabilities that could allow remote code execution with a specially crafted Excel file. It also notes that those who use Office 2011 with administrative user rights could be more impacted than those with more restrictive user permissions.
