When will we see a patch for the Word 0-day vulnerabilities?

Summary:Microsoft, where's my patch for all those Word 0-day vulnerabilities?

No one else here at ZDNet's said it so I will - I've just bought in four patches for XP via Microsoft Update and I'm saddened and a bit shocked to see that none of these deal with the critical 0-day Word vulnerabilities.  Come on Microsoft, Office users surely aren't going to have to wait another month for a patch?  What are people who deal with Word docs on a regular basis?  As someone who does (and knows a lot of people who do) I can tell you that it sucks.  This kind of delay in seeing a patch is making me look at alternatives.

Microsoft, if you're reading, Word users want some kinda hint as to when they can expect a patch!
