Secunia PSI scan just started telling me that microsoft word 2002 is insecure and indicates that an update is available. The link leads me to the Microsoft software update site which finds NO update. HELP

Hi,

Microsoft Updates frequently require a reboot to kick in. Therefore, to update Microsoft products successfully, this procedure should be followed:

1) Check Microsoft Update, and install all critical patches
2) Reboot
3) Repeat step 1, repeat step 2 if you installed anything during this step
4) Rescan with the PSI
You should be shown as Secure.

hope this helps.

You should have installed KB2251389 last week. Check if Winword.exe is the patched version 10.0.6864.0. If not try downloading from the Microsoft Download Center:

Remember to select the appropriate language before downloading.
