Update 12.2.5 for Microsoft Office 2008 on Mac Released

The latest update for Office 2008, version 12.2.5, is now available for users. Microsoft has announced that this update addresses several security vulnerabilities that could potentially allow an attacker to replace the memory on your computer with malicious code.

Additionally, the update enhances the overall stability and performance of the Office 2008 suite.

Another improvement in this update is the enhanced functionality of the custom dictionary, which now supports the inclusion of multilingual words.

The update can be accessed via Microsoft’s auto-update feature and is about a 200MB download. Alternatively, if you prefer to download it directly, you can visit Microsoft’s Mac downloads page, where the file size is approximately 333MB.

This might be a better option if you need to update multiple Macs.
