Chapter 19. Macros > Macro Virus Protection

Macro Virus Protection

VBA is a powerful programming language that can be used to create applications that work within Microsoft Office. Unfortunately, virus programmers have embraced it as a perfect programming and distribution environment for creating and spreading their dirty deeds.

One of the benefits of Word’s macro feature—from the programmer and user points of view—is that macros are stored in template files. This makes them easy to distribute. Send someone a Word file that contains a macro and that person can use the macro on his computer. He can even copy the macro to other templates and share them with others.
