Subject: Office XP Update: March 23, 2004

I guess Microsoft is getting in to the habit of releasing security 
updates without a security bulletin. That should help them in their 
public relations, oops I mean security, campaign.

This update won't show up on Windows Update. If you do a scan on Office 
Update you'll be offered the patch. How many people do that on a regular 
basis?

Script Editor and may require that you restart your computer

List of issues fixed by the update
The Office XP Update: KB833858 fixes the following issues that were 
previously not documented in the Microsoft Knowledge Base.

Default debugging permissions have been enhanced
Changes have been made to the Microsoft Visual Studio .NET debugger that 
is included in Microsoft Office XP to make debugging permissions more

Administrators group or the Debugger Users group will no longer be able
