Microsoft advises ‘safe mode’ for Word

Not sure how I missed this yesterday but it appears a pretty serious bug in Word has caused Microsoft to issue a warning. They are asking everyone to run Word in Safe mode, first off all I did not even know Word had such a feature in the first place. But it seems this is another major issue that is in a long line of exploits that make me wonder how long will it be before we all wake up one morning to a flashing cursor on our computers and the hard-drives erased.
