Hi,

PSI is currently giving me a rating of 98% as a result of a new version of Open Office (3.3.0) being available.

When I take the option to fix the problem, whilst I see the latest US English version is indeed 3.3.0, the appropriate UK English version is still 3.2.1 - or is it me who has lost the plot?

Any confirmation of the situation appreciated.

Many thanks - eljay.

Hello Eljay ,

Your assessment is quite correct .

Version 3.2.1 is insecure as per SA 40775 and other later SA's reported therein :-

http://secunia.com/advisories/40775/

If you can understand/bear with the American spellings , etc ., you would be well advised to update to the US version of 3.3.0 until the GB language version is released .

Many language versions lag behind the public release date of "security" update versions ; unfortunately not everyone who uses OOo speaks English and are really hamstrung .

Hope that is clear .

Take care

Anthony
