Microsoft issues patch for PowerPoint vulnerabilities

Microsoft released a security patch today that addresses fourteen vulnerabilities in PowerPoint. Eleven of those flaws were rated as critical. At the same time, the company stopped support for PowerPoint 4.0 in PowerPoint 2000, which they had already done for later versions of the software.

Although the patch addresses a large number of vulnerabilities, it is still a single patch available via Microsoft's update service. It affects all Windows versions of PowerPoint. The patch for the Mac OS will be released next month, even though the vulnerability does not target the Mac.

Here is more information about this release from ComputerWorld.
