Critical security updates for Windows and Macintoshes
February 16, 2007
Microsoft released new patches for critical Windows, Microsoft Visual Studio, and Microsoft Office security vulnerabilities on February 13, 2007.
All Windows PCs must be patched.
To patch your PC:
Click on the update icon on the taskbar (it is a globe or yellow shield with an exclamation point, depending on which version of Windows you're running).
If you do not have such an icon, run Windows Update by going to the site:http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com
All Office 2000 users should also go to the site: http://officeupdate.microsoft.com
After patching, you must reboot your PC in order for the patches to take effect.
If you are using Microsoft Visual Studio .NET, you should apply the patch for the version you are using:http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/ms0
If you are using Microsoft Office 2004 on a Macintosh, you should install the Microsoft Office 2004 for Mac 11.3.4 Update:http://www.microsoft.com/mac/downloads.aspx#Office2004
If you have any questions or problems applying these patches, please contact the SCS Help Desk at x8-4231 or send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
