Description:

This security update for Microsoft Word 2000 is best described as a mini service pack. It features 19 fixes for Word 2000 - see below - plus it addresses two important security issues. These security holes could allow a hacker or virus to get onto your system (for the technically minded, the problem lies in two buffer underrun errors that could lead to remote code execution).

This is the complete list of additional fixes with the Microsoft knowledge base article at the front.
