Comment Mac compatibility out the window? (Score 1) 555

I think i've found something far more disturbing reading the ms KB article,

under the list of formats that you can selectively unblock by setting windows registry keys (yes, this will be VERY administratively friendly, don't let the user do this, don't let the IT dept be able to write an easy 'howto' :S ) it quietly says "Word 2004 for Macintosh".

what the fuck? office 2008 for mac isn't even RELEASED yet, it will be in a couple of days. Shock horror, mac users getting the shaft again.

there goes the productivity between PC/Mac integrated networks.

why do I have the feeling admins are just going to nullify this for ease of use and set the registry key to 0?

how many attack vectors are there for ancient formats? and even if there are loads, wouldn't they be well documented by now, and any decent admin would be running a virus scanner if they use windows?

gahhh.
