Microsoft Office 2011 14.4.5

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

Microsoft has updated Office 2011 [1] to version 14.4.5, a critical update that fixes a privately reported vulnerability that could have allowed remote code execution if an attacker convinced a user to open a specially crafted Microsoft Word file (see this Microsoft Security Bulletin [2] for more information). The update also addresses an issue that caused Outlook for Mac 2011’s main window not to be displayed after restarting in OS X 10.10 Yosemite, plus fixes a problem in Outlook that caused unnecessary synchronizing and updating of Microsoft Exchange server messages (for Exchange 2007 and Exchange 2010 accounts only). (Free update from the Microsoft Download Center [3] or through Microsoft AutoUpdate, 114 MB, release notes [4], 10.5.8+)
