    How is it possible that MS06-12 (Excel security patch) "replaces" MS06-003
    which was a patch which addresses Vulnerability in TNEF Decoding in Microsoft
    Outlook.

    From the FAQ section of MS06-12, it gives a table saying "This security
    update replaces a prior security update. The security bulletin ID and
    affected operating systems are listed in the following table." and then it
    says Outlook 2003 is replaced. Then if you look at the Administrative
    Installation Info for MS06-12, it says it only replaces Excel.exe, which
    isn't one of the files replaced in MS06-003! I'm so confused.

    Let me know if I've posted this to the wrong forum...thanks.
