Microsoft warns of 22 new security flaws including Excel flaw that affects Mac OS X

“Microsoft published 10 software security advisories on Tuesday, warning Windows users and corporate administrators of 22 new flaws that affect the company’s products,” Robert Lemos reports for CNET News. “The advisories, and patches published with the bulletins, range from an ‘important’ flaw affecting only Microsoft Windows NT Server to a collection of eight security holes, including three rated ‘critical,’ that leave Internet Explorer open to attack. Microsoft’s highest severity rating for software flaws is its ‘critical’ ranking, while “important” is considered slightly less severe. One flaw, in Microsoft Excel, even affects Apple Computer’s Mac OS X.”

  1. Wonderful. What little involvement MS has with the Macintosh, and they have managed to leverage it to let in vulnerabilities. I have zero respect for them or their products.
