Microsoft Office 2011 14.3.8
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.

I see no posts from folks unable to update Office on Mountain Lion 10.8.5, but just in case I'm wasn't the only TidBITS reader who experienced that, I found this post:
I did an OS X Restore (a Command-R restart) and the update then installed (the Flash update, too).
