The Microsoft Office 2010 IT Blog : Leaked build and Staying Safe

Apparently bad things can come to those who can’t wait

I wanted to post quickly to acknowledge the information that you have seen today around bits of Office 2010 being leaked.  While all of us here are happy to see the incredible excitement and engagement (and are absolutely chomping at the bit to reach the July milestone) we aren’t quite ready to release the technical preview bits.  I would encourage all of you to wait until the official bits are available to ensure the best possible experience and not miss out on anything we may include. 

As a heads up, because we want to ensure our customers are safe, we have been monitoring various torrents and already detected quite a few that were infected.  As a reminder,  the Win 7 leak was used as a vector for attack and it’s not surprising to see this being used the same way.  So, please be aware that if you download this torrent there is a very good chance you are also getting some unexpected malware with it. 

In the meantime keep checking back as we will certainly have more updates.
