Hello, this is Tim Rains.
Very quickly, I wanted to let you know that we've just re-released MS08-014 for Microsoft Office Excel 2003 Service Pack 2 and Service Pack 3 only.
The original version released on March 11, 2008 did fully protect against the security issues discussed in the bulletin. However, after release we discovered that the security update caused a calculation error in Microsoft Excel 2003 when a Real Time Data source was used in a user-created Visual Basic for Applications solution (in other words a custom-built VBA function). For additional details, please refer to KB950340.
If you're not running Microsoft Excel 2003, this re-release doesn't apply to you and you don't need to take any action.
If you are running Microsoft Excel 2003 Service Pack 2 or Service Pack 3, you should use the guidance provided in Knowledge Base article KB950340 to deploy the new update. It is being released through all the same distribution channels as the original MS08-014 security update. It is also supported by the same detection and deployment tools as the original update.
