    Microsoft warned on Tuesday that has received reports of online criminals attacking a previously undocumented (and unpatched) security hole in various versions of its Microsoft Word application.

    In an advisory, Microsoft said the problem is present in Microsoft Word 2000, Microsoft Word 2002, Microsoft Office Word 2003, Microsoft Word Viewer 2003, Microsoft Word 2004 for Mac, and Microsoft Word 2004 v. X for Mac, as well as Microsoft Works 2004, 2005 and 2006.

    Microsoft said it is working on a patch to fix the problem, but the earliest that users are likely to see it would be Dec. 12, the company's next regularly scheduled patch release date.
