Today Secunia had updates for all 5 products in Office 2003. When I click on them it just takes me to Microsoft's Office website. Microsoft Update has no updates for these products. Are these showing up because they will no longer be patched and I am being told to get a later version?

There was a patch released for Office 2003 on Tuesday. Have you tried a manual Windows Update followed by a reboot & full PSI rescan?

Yes I have been to the Microsoft Update website and their are no updates related to Office 2003. There are no high priority updates at all.

Microsoft Excel 2003 has version 11.8404.8405 SP3.

This refers:

Have you checked your update history to see if it is installed?

Do you mean you are looking at the Microsoft website or are you running Windows Update to check your system?

Hi numcrun.

I downloaded and applied all Office 2003 updates under XP this past Tuesday.
Only upon the PSI scan today, did it flag each Office program.

I simply was able to ignore each program which raised the my level to 99%.
(The other 1% is for ignoring Widows XP, as a whole - see my other post.)

FWIW,

Compumind.

Yes I have update 2878303 installed. The user above has the same issue. It looks like a false positive.

According to Secunia it is not a false positive for 2003. Their advisory is here:

I have marked these programs as Ignore, because they will presumably never be patched.

That is correct. All updates from Microsoft have ceased & Secunia will not track that version.
