An update package especially designed for Microsoft Outlook 2002 that brings increased stability and more security features and improvements





Ensuring an installed product is up to date at all times is something every user should do in order to benefit from the latest enhancements offered by the software developers. Often security patches and bug fixes are released in order to solve possible flaws that may affect an application released to the large public and Microsoft is well-known for taking care of this on a regular basis.

Microsoft Outlook has always been among the utilities that had their fair share of vulnerabilities that could leave users exposed to all sorts of attacks and exploits. For this reason, the Redmond based company releases numerous updates that are mostly concerned with improvements in the security area, as well as for repairing issues that would render the software unstable at times.

Outlook 2002 Update: December 4, 2002 is a special upgrade package that is focused on a problem that would potentially lead to the application being blocked by external interferences. More precisely, there was a certain vulnerability that would make it possible for someone to send a malicious e-mail message which would result in rendering the current Outlook session unresponsive.

Another important fix is designed to take care of an issue that affected Outlook POP3 and SMTP clients. This bug was brought about by Office XP Service Pack 2. In fact, that version of Microsoft's well-known Office suite is required in order to be able to setup this update package onto a computer. The installer performs the verification and in case the minimal requirements are not met, the procedure will stop immediately.
