Where is the update for Visio Viewer 2002 and Visio Viewer 2003?We recommend that all users of Visio Viewer 2003 and Visio Viewer 2003 upgrade to the latest, free version of Visio Viewer 2007 to address this security vulnerability. Users who cannot upgrade should apply the update from MS09-034. This Internet Explorer update mitigates the attack vector for affected Visio Viewer platforms. Users may also apply the kill bit for the affected control by using the procedures that are listed in the workaround sections of this bulletin. A kill bit for these controls will be included in a future cumulative security update for Internet Explorer.

Why are Knowledge Base articles 974554, 974556, and 974234 not listed in the security bulletin?These packages do not contain security updates and do not correct any security-related issues. However, these updates resolve a problem that can cause programs that use Outlook View Control with Forms 2.0, such as Microsoft Office Outlook with Business Contact Manager, to stop functioning as expected after Security Update. If you use Outlook View Control with Forms 2.0, we encourage you to apply these updates after installing the security update
