Word Macro Security Fix Available -- Microsoft has posted the Microsoft Word for Macintosh Security Update: Macro Vulnerability, a long title for a simple and important fix. In Word 98 and Word 2001, malicious code can be embedded as a macro in Rich Text Format (RTF) files, which would not be recognized by Word's internal macro-checking mechanism. The update prevents macros from opening without a security warning. The problem only affects Word 98 and Word 2001, not the other components of Microsoft Office. The update is a 361K download. [JLC]
