This patch addresses a vulnerability that could allow malicious code to run in a Rich Text Format (RTF) document without warning. Under normal circumstances, you will see a warning in Word 2000 when you open a document attached to a template containing macros. However, it is possible for an RTF document to be linked to a template containing macros in such a way that a macro can run with no warning issued. This could cause damage to data or allow unauthorized retrieval of data from your system when you visit a Web site or open an e-mail message.
