The September Public Update release for Office is now live and available for download. This release contains 3 security bulletins and 17 non-security updates.
Security updates were released for:

It appears the KB2583910 has broken the reminders in Outlook for a number of users. Running /resetfolders and /cleanreminders fixes the problem for a while but it comes back.
I have a question regarding the "Update for Office File Validation 2010 (KB2553065), 32-Bit Edition and 64-Bit Edition". Some months ago you introduced the File validation also für Office 2007 and 2003. Are there going to be separate Updates for those versions or is this Update also suitable for Office 2007/2003 with the OFV-Update? It is a little confusing that the KB-article 2553065 is only mentioning the downloads for Office 2010 but is also talking about a bugfix in Excel 2003 regarding slow opening of workbooks from network locations.
