Microsoft Acknowledges

Acknowledging a security breech in its flagship computer programs, Microsoft said Thursday an upgrade of its popular "Office" software suite will begin shipping this month without some of the features that have made computers vulnerable to viruses like the Melissa strain that has tied up so many corporate networks in recent days.

The word processing program in Office 2000, "Word," will be set to automatically disable mini-programs called "macros" unless they contain special digital signatures from trusted sources. A growing number of viruses have used macros to sneak into computers and wreak havoc on networks. People who want to use macros in Word documents would have to make a decision to change the setting.
