New CVE document
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-3431

published recently confirms the information that Microsoft Excel Style handling vulnerability aka Nanika.xls issue is a 
separate vulnerability.
This vulnerability mentioned affects only to Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Japanese and Korean versions of 
Excel.

This vulnerability (let's say 4th Excel vulnerability) uses Repair Mode too and user interaction is needed.
This information has been updated to my First Microsoft Excel 0-day Vulnerability FAQ document at SecuriTeam Blogs.

If fix to this vulnerability is included to monthly July updates from Microsoft it's expected that this CVE-2006-3431
is listed in the upcoming security bulletin to clarify the situation.

So-called 1st Excel code execution vulnerability reported in June is
