“Diagnostic-Code: smtp; 552 MS-Office file containing VBA macros found inside of the email”
Of course it contains bloody VBA – I’m a bloody VBA developer FFS!!
So I’m trying to send a client an app (the magnificent (and popular) Alternative FileSearch for Office 2007 since you ask) and their email is having non of it.
I guess if a few more mail servers implement this featurectomy approach to security, we’ll have to move to browser/cloud apps.
Of course quotes like this don’t help Excel/VBA’s security hole image:
Well anyone with Trend Micro mail software can’t.
bah bloody humbug!
anyone caught by this? is it an increasing trend do you think?
(I’ve had a client for years where one of the Excel/VBA apps has been flagged as a virus by certain mail servers, we just zip it with a password). oh thats a good idea…
