The software giant rolled back planned changes last week , surprising IT admins who had been preparing for Microsoft to prevent Office users from easily enabling macros in Office files downloaded from the internet.

The change, designed to improve security in Office, was supposed to go live in June before Microsoft suddenly reverted the block on June 30th. It seems bonkers that in this day and age VBA macros are still a thing, but I guess the business world is quite dependent on them. VBA scripts are incredibly useful for relatively quick and easy automation that is extremely difficult to replicate using external tooling.

I think automation is still an excellent concept, but in retrospect it was probably a bad idea to embed the scripts inside the exact same data files that users end up emailling to one another. In other words, XLS should only contain data and never executable code. Executable code should be in separate code files that users would have to install separately if and when they need to.

This would have made it far easier for everyone including home users and system admins to follow and enforce safe practices transferring documents while keeping a mechanism for the automation. I dunno. VBA scripts and worksheet contents are often tightly linked. Also there were COM add-ins in the past, going even further. Life itself is very functional, and deadly. Finding a balance is hard. Maybe each and every office file should ask one time for permissions like on Android; can I have filesystem access?

And so on. Or a PKI infra could be created where the owner of the private key can determine the execution rights of the signed VBA script. For users who are developing their own scripts, IMHO they should be knowledgeable enough to figure it out where to keep them. Frankly users who cannot figure it out are unlikely to have the skills necessary to write their own scripts. That would introducing a ton of complexity without much gain IMHO.

I agree that separation of data and code is, in principle, good. But those Excel files tend to be emailed, copied to computers at home and laptops…. Of course those scripts can be placed on a public webserver but that creates other problems. Good point though on AV scanning…. Maybe a centralized server could do a more reliable job in that regard. Anyway those Excel files still ask for code to be executed, even when the code is somewhere else. It needs permission to do so.

But those pesky security questions are a nuisance indeed, even more so for PKI; I agree to your objections. Still you can limit those questions, e. Yes but at the same time large enterprise environments have solutions for that. IT could push the scripts to all members of an active directory group automatically as soon as they log in whether it is dozens or thousands of users without much fuss.

It was along these lines I was thinking when I suggested that separating code makes it much easier to automate deployment to a massive user base. You only live once! My guess is that the relevant code is in the parts of Microsoft Office source code that nobody in Microsoft understands anymore, and as a result, nobody dares touch out of fear of breaking something. Hence the cop-out solution of disabling editing altogether, which basically disables a large part of Microsoft Office.

Again, this has the whiff of code that was written in the 90s and never touched since. I disagree with the idea macros should be a separate code file though. Do you expect users to correctly match code files to documents? It would have been solved a long time ago if the decision had been made to keep code and data seperate in the first place. And to be fair there is something to say about keeping things the way they are because people are already used to it.

If the file refers to the code file, it can still run the code as if it were inline. Think of an XML file. If the user HAS in fact installed arbitrary code on their system then it needs to be understood that the code they install could be malicious or vulnerable.

Standard security practices should apply to the code just as with all executable software. Sandboxing is important too. Contrast this to installing an automation script: 1 it is a relatively rare event, 2 the barriers to accidental installation are higher, 3 it is more likely to be done by a competent administrator. How is LibreOffice Basic somehow superior to Visual Basic, can someone answer this with a straight face?

Makros are very useful in daily office life. They are not bonkers at all. So MS was trying to push users to use MS cloud services instead of self hosted ones… Sadly they are still trying to do that … just little bit later.

Can you elaborate what you mean by this? The lack of native support for file shares is a major con of these mobile platforms that has persisted to this day. I think the motivation for the lack of such services was to push users onto centralized services from the start and making self hosting extremely impractical.

What are they? After the now rolled back changes one could no longer manipulate files with macros on such shares, but you would need to copy them on your computer first and open from there and save them back eventually. And yes: Android and iOS are even worse here. Actually now that you mention it we used to be able to run installers and even full applications directly from mapped shares, which functioned identically to local drives.

I think it was with windows 7? I guess it could be related to what you are seeing. Yeah it is. The need to copy files back and forth manually in 3rd party apps is so damn tedious.

In the case of android the network file system features were already implemented upstream, they just had to enable it. LibreOffice is installed here on every machine as well, but the acceptance among my coworkers is not very promising … And in case of MS-Office files with macros: no chance! So there is no real excuse for iOS not doing so. LibreOffice is installed here on every machine as well, but the acceptance among my coworkers is not very promising ….

Yes I understand. Unfortunately the versions of MS office that I really liked are long defunct. So now it looks like MS it watching this and tries to recreate that same limitations on Windows.

Imagine Microsoft would invent the Internet. You would need antivirus software for using the internet. Just remove the VBA macros support altogether. No checkbox can resolve that. It just gives false sense of security. I certainly think there is room to debate the implementations, but I for one am glad to have the option and in the same vein I think office scripting needs to be an option too. There is nothing egoistical about it.

Using such technology at home or worse in corporate environment. People that made it should be shot. If you plan to defend them then be my guest but you are wrong. This is the same thing. You can visit OSNews without being asked a question if you would like to compromise security for being able to view its content. And that is with auto running scripting involved. If Microsoft would invent the internet then you would get a pop-up.

Asking you would you like to compromise security for being able to view OSNews? And some people would call such crap as being extremely powerful. And i can imagine some would defend it too. For whatever reason involved. Fell free to disregard the security notice Microsoft has installed.

To run VBA macros. From a lets say an e-mail attachment. At your home and at work. That is if you feel we are doing Microsoft wrong. Due to some bias. An average person should get some coherent answers after a few of such acts. If you read what others and myself have been saying, there need to be protections especially against accidental execution. But still automation is too useful to remove entirely.

Sandboxing came up, which could differentiate between scripts that modify the document versus ones that modify the file system, etc. As I said before: I certainly think there is room to debate the implementations, but I for one am glad to have the option.

If you are against owners having this option, then where are you drawing the line in terms of what owners are allowed to do? Should they be allowed to sideload? Rather just read again what you wrote in your two answers.
