6.12. Common Questions

Whew, this chapter is already longer than I planned and (I fear) too complicated. In order to simplify things a bit, I include the following common security problems, with brief descriptions of how to solve them. I hope it helps!

6.12.1. What is partial trust?

The Excel macro security model is based on trust and known publishers. Macro code is digitally signed and that signature identifies the source (publisher) of the macro. At that point, the user makes the decision whether to trust that publisher. The inference here is that if the macro does something bad, the user will no longer trust that publisher and possibly pursue damages through the legal system.
