Tip: Word patch for 2002, 2000


 "This security update resolves a privately reported vulnerability in Microsoft Word that could allow remote code execution if a user opens a specially crafted Word file with a malformed string. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than users who operate with administrative user rights."
