Upcoming change to release schedule for non-security Office updates

We want to let you know about an important change coming to the release schedule for Office updates so that you can plan accordingly. Until now, both security and non-security updates have been released on the second Tuesday of each month. Starting in April, the non-security updates will be released in Microsoft Update and the Windows Server Update Service (WSUS) on the first Tuesday of the month, which is April 5 in this case. This will include all updates that have the Critical or Definition classification. Updates with the Security classification will continue to release on second Tuesday as usual.

I just checked WU and i have 4 important Office 2010 updates available that were published yesterday (2016-05-05).
I don't know how long it took WU to check for these, i didn't manually check WU to see what is available for me.

We have Microsoft Office 2007 installed. InfoPath, Powerpoint, Publisher, Word. Are we vulnerable to security holes in, for example, Excel? Should we install all Microsoft Office security updates?
