Hello Renil,

Could you send us (privately) the KB of a host which reports such
false positives? I'm very surprised at the results you're getting
since we use the version of the files on disk -- so in your case, the
only way to get the superseded patches to appear in your report would
be to apply no Office patch at all.


Thanks,
-- Renaud
