Microsoft offers quick fix for Mac Office 2008 bug
January 25, 2008 (Computerworld) Microsoft Corp.'s Macintosh group has come up with a work-around to fix bungled installations of the new Office for Mac 2008.

That could be a security problem for some shops, since IT administrators regularly lock down client systems to stymie attacks and prevent accidental changes by sloppy users.
Joel Bruner, the Chicago-based Mac consultant who first noticed the screw-up, said in an interview yesterday that a fix should be straightforward for Microsoft and that it is necessary.
