Allowing Powershell to be called from a Word VB macro.


Hoping someone can help with allowing a specific powershell script to be called from within Word VB.

The powershell script itself creates a PDF and does a number of other things which simplify day to day working and it used by all staff at my company.   It worked fine prior to installing McAfee MVision, but now powershell is flagged as a threat and blocked.

I’ve read up on how malicious code is injected via word and powershell, so I can understand why it is blocked.

Is it possible to sign this script and put in an exception within McAfee to allow it to work?


If I add winword.exe to the list of process exclusions then it works, but this will open up any malicious code so I don’t want to go down this road.
