|Microsoft change their mind - a sorry tale of macro security|
|Will you soon need to modify a downloaded file's before you can run macros contained in it? Yes … and then no (and now maybe).|
So in May the other Andy Owl (Gould, not Brown - different colour) emailed me to suggest that newsletter readers might be interested in this article reporting that macros in Office files downloaded from the Internet would be blocked by default:
From now on, it was announced, you would have to change a downloaded file's properties to unblock macros in it.
(This change was just in time to ensure that my word search macros for a previous month's competition failed to run on many people's computers!).
I decided this wasn't of quite enough general interest, and am glad I did: Microsoft have now reversed their decision (although apparently on July 11th they announced that this move was temporary).
Our thanks to Vince Hardwick of Beacon LLP for bringing this to our attention.
