Hello, this is Christopher Budd.

Very quickly, I wanted to let you know that we've just re-released MS07-002 for Excel 2000 only.

The original version released on January 9, 2007 did fully protect against the security issues discussed in the bulletin. However, after release we discovered  that the security update did not correctly process the phonetic information that is embedded in files that are created by using Excel in the Korean, Chinese, or Japanese executable mode.

If you're not running Excel 2000, this re-release doesn't apply to you and you don't need to take any action.

If you are running Excel 2000 you should go ahead and deploy the new update. It is being released through all the same distribution channels as the original update. It is also supported by the same detection and deployment tools as the original update.

Thanks.

Christopher
