Patch Tuesday! One down, one left to exploit you!

Microsoft patches one Office flaw, leaves another
Publisher software gets repair, but similar hole in Word unfixed

September 12, 2006 (IDG News Service) -- Microsoft Corp. has released its monthly set of security patches, fixing a critical flaw in Office.

Attackers could exploit the bug by tricking Office users into opening a maliciously encoded .pub document, which would then allow attackers to run unauthorized software on a victim's PC. These .pub documents are created by Microsoft's Publisher software, an Office component used for designing print and online business publications.

Microsoft rates the bug as "critical" for Publisher 2000, but this warning has been downgraded to "important" for the Publisher 2002 and Publisher 2003 products.

Some security experts expected Microsoft to fix a similar bug in Word, which has been used by online attackers over the past few weeks, but that problem remains unfixed.
