Microsoft is set to release four ‘critical' updates on 11th March for all supported versions of its Office suite.

The updates are targeted at various Office flaws, all of which can be exploited by a hacker to remotely execute code on a target PC.

This Tuesday the firm will patch Office 2000, Office XP, Office 2003 and Office 2007. Version 2004 and 2008 for Macintosh and Microsoft Office Web Components 2000 will also be updated. The software vendor will also deliver three high-priority, non-security updates simultaneously.

According to reports, it's the first time that the Redmond-based company has released a set of patches related to Office that are all labeled critical - the highest alert level on Microsoft's scale.
