I was poking around the newsgroups last night when I came across a thread about IRM failing in Excel.
A few people seem to be suffering the same problem – within the last two weeks something changed and now their credentials are not accepted by Excel and they are locked out of their files.(here is the link)
My first thought was the Nov security hotfix for 2007 and 2003, but actually the thread is developing more along the lines that something changed at Hotmail (the credential authority).
I have never used IRM
- a. because I don’t put my Excel machine on the internet
- b. because fear of being locked out of my own files far outweighs the comfort of knowing other people who might get hold of it will be locked out.
Do you use IRM?
Do you have a fix for the issue these folks are seeing?
