Just in case you needed reminding, Office 2010 is not secure. Vupen Security just released information about two vulnerabilities in the software suite. This is especially embarassing for Microsoft when you consider the fact that Office 2010 has not been out very long. More time will certainly bring more flaws to public attention.
