My XP Pro SP3 system has Microsoft Office Word Viewer 2003.

Microsoft Update offers me patch KB2289187, identified as a security update for Microsoft Office 2003.

Secunia's full scan with Secunia PSI 2.0 beta (release 1.9.0.5004) reports Microsoft Office Word Viewer 2003 installed and up-to-date (all available security patches installed).

I have reviewed the list of patches on the system with appwiz.cpl (Add or Remove Programs), and believe that KB2289187 is not installed. So in this case it seems that Microsoft is right.

Cheers,

MetaEd

This is an odd one. I got offered and installed this update, apparently for Word Viewer, by Microsoft Update. But the Microsoft bulletin, http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin... states that Word Viewer is not affected.

A related matter, see this thread on Microsoft Office PowerPoint Viewer 2007:
http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/636...
There, I have reported a patch which apparently fixes the same vulnerability in Microsoft Office 2007, and is offered by Microsoft to systems having Microsoft Office PowerPoint Viewer 2007. PSI reports the presence of Microsoft Office 2007 components, but says the installation has all available security patches installed.

Cheers,

I think that these products must share DLLs with the vulnerable products and so got the updates just for consistency. I got more updates last Tuesday than I expected after reading the Microsoft advisories.

I think that is partly right. However, as I have now reported over on the other thread, there is also a security update KB2413381 specifically for the PowerPoint Viewer 2007. That app is installed on my system and Microsoft is offering me the security update. But PSI is not calling PowerPoint Viewer 2007 out as having an uninstalled security update.
