WAY better.

Our initial investigations show that the vulnerability will not affect Office 2013 but will affect older versions such as Office 2003 and 2007. Due to the way Office 2010 uses the vulnerable graphic library, it is only affected only when running on older platforms such as Windows XP or Windows Server 2003, but it is not affected when running on newer Windows families (7, 8 and 8.1). This is another example that demonstrates the benefits of running recent versions of software in terms of security improvements (consider also that Windows XP support will end in April 2014) and also Office 2003. For more information and for the complete list of affected software, please refer to Security Advisory 2896666.
