PSI scans MS Word 2003 SP3 running on Windows XP Pro SP3 as insecure. The Secunia PSI recommended patch is: "Security Update for Microsoft Office Word 2003 (KB956357))" issued Dec 9, 2008. (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?Fa...) This patch states: "Supported Operating Systems: Windows 2000 Service Pack 4; Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1; Windows Vista; Windows XP Service Pack 2". This information was pasted from this web site. My operating system is Windows XP SP3. XP SP3 is a NON supported operating system and Microsoft Update will not update nor will the downloaded office2003-KB956357-FullFile-ENU.exe patch install. The Microsoft Security Bulletin MS08-072 - Critical does not mention operating systems at all which is a big mistake on Microsoft's part. However, the fact that there is not an available patch at this time should be reflected in Secunia PSIs database.

Please fix this error Secunia. Error time: 9 days

I am having a similar problem with Office 2K. I am also using XPPro SP3. I just finished updating all of my Office programs and PSI is still reporting them as insecure.

Hi Eagle2,I have XP SP3 and KB956357 is installed so PSI scans MS Word as secure. You say firstly you have the Pro version of XP SP3 and then latter 'My operating system is Windows XP SP3' no mention of 'Pro' however you must have this as I have this file on the standred version. This is amazing. I'm afraid the only advise I can give you is to contact Microsoft if you can do that. I will be very intested to know how you get on.

In other topics, I and others have reported this as fixed by downloading newer definitions. Search for 'word 2003'.

I resolved it by re-running the full scan - not just Word etc. I believe the full scan updates the definitions.
