Microsoft released a batch of updates for supported versions of Microsoft Office yesterday. The released updates for Microsoft Office 2010, 2013 and 2016 are non-security updates only. Microsoft will release security updates for Office on the second Tuesday of September, on September 11, 2018.
The released updates are only applicable for MSI-installed versions of Microsoft Office and not for Office 365.
Only one update was released for Microsoft Office 2010, three for Microsoft Office 2013, and nine for Microsoft Office 2016.
