Office Mac users at risk

PC security experts have criticized Microsoft this week for releasing security patches attempting to fix vulnerabilities in Windows versions of their presentation program Powerpoint, whilst announcing Mac users of Office Mac could remain at risk, until patches for OS X are completed in June.

Swa Frantzen, a security analyst, claims that Microsoft have ignored its practices for responsible disclosure, by revealing that Office Mac 2004 and 2008 contain three unpatched vulnerabilities. These, he said, could lead to a possibility of hackers exploiting this Mac weakness.

Following complaints by security analysts, Microsoft is said to have had no further comment than that released in the statement, along with the patch for Windows.
