"Microsoft is readying a security update for Word that repairs this vulnerability, a company representative said in an e-mailed statement. The fix is scheduled to be released as part of the June 13 security updates, or sooner, if warranted, the representative said."

Just what more is required to make this patch warranted for release? There is an exploit, in the wild, for this vulnerability - it's release should be "warranted" immediately.

Just what I (and every other sane Word user) thought - shame MS people aren't sane really.
