Several months after the flaw was first reported, Microsoft's announcement [story.news.yahoo.com] was revealed on Tuesday.

Microsoft acknowledged on Tuesday that its popular Office applications for the Macintosh have a critical security flaw that leaves users' systems open to attack by worms and online vandals...

...The problems come two months after Microsoft revealed that the product serial numbers on its Office products could be used by hackers to shut down the programs.
