Microsoft Office 2011 14.1.2, 2008 12.3.0, and 2004 11.6.4
New from Microsoft are updates to the last three versions of its flagship Office for Mac suite. According to the company, the three releases, labeled 14.1.2 for Office 2011, 12.3.0 for Office 2008, and 11.6.4 for Office 2004, are all aimed at security, addressing eight important
vulnerabilities focused on specially crafted Excel files that an attacker could use to overwrite the contents of a computer’s memory with malicious code. Office for Mac 2011 14.1.2 also fixes several bugs in Outlook and Word. (Free updates; 109 MB, 333 MB, 13 MB)
Biggest and buggiest release of an update patch ever by Microsoft. I had to actually stop using Outlook and go back to using Apple Mail and iCal. Outlook 2011 simply doesn't work after the update.
Once again, MS AutoUpdate shows itself for the poorly designed software it is.
Upon reading this news in Tidbits, I checked for Updates, and AutoUpdate told me I had 3 to install. Great. Click "Install" and wait for them to install, right? Nope. In order to do the first installation, I have to quit AutoUpdate. And of course that means that only one installation takes place, requiring me to reboot a MS application and redo the process. I wonder when they will fix this....
I get a message that I don't have the correct system. 10.6.8 isn't the right system? The pages I get say the same thing!
Interesting. These updates came out slightly before 10.6.8, but it's surprising that they would check for that, since Microsoft would have known 10.6.8 was due out soon. Do you get different results if you download manually versus using Microsoft Auto Update?
