Finally! Microsoft Will Block Office Macros


Recommended Posts

Microsoft to block internet macros by default in five Office applications


In one of the most impactful changes made in recent years, Microsoft has announced today that it will block by default the execution of VBA macro scripts inside five Office applications.

Starting with early April 2022, Access, Excel, PowerPoint, Visio, and Word users will not be able to enable macro scripts inside untrusted documents that they downloaded from the internet.

The change, which security researchers have been requesting for years, is expected to put a serious roadblock for malware gangs, which have relied on tricking users into enabling the execution of a macro script as a way to install malware on their systems.

As always , Microsoft is late to the party , I believe most users who are aware of it already have it disabled by default.
