In addition to its Internet Explorer-related update released today, Microsoft has made available the
Microsoft Office v. X Combined Updater 10.0.3, an update package specifically for users of Microsoft Office v. X.
The updater includes a fix for Entourage, the e-mail client and personal information management application included with Office v. X. According to Microsoft, the Entourage update enables Entourage to connect to MSN Hotmail servers, which Microsoft has also upgraded with more secure technology.
Additionally, the updater includes a network security update that enables Office v. X and its standalone programs to run more securely on a network. A URL security update is also included, which protects users from a security vulnerability that could be exploited to allow malicious code to run on your Mac, according to Microsoft.
