Got M$ Word? Got Virus?

Pending the availability of a security fix, Microsoft advises users
"not [to] open or save Word files that you receive from untrusted sources or that you receive unexpectedly from trusted sources."

Can Micro$oft be considered a 'trusted source' any more?

Here's the advisory from Micro$oft they own selves and from The Register.

Meanwhile, want security? Download and use OpenOffice, which is free and virus free.
