    Office 2007 / 2010 XML file scan

      Hi,

       

      Does VSE scan XML files when opening them in Word/Excel/Powerpoint. Does McAfee VSE support the Microsoft Antivirus API?

       

      These Policy Settings

      • Determine whether to force encrypted macros to be scanned in Microsoft Excel Open XML workbooks
      • Scan encrypted macros in Word Open XML documents
      • Scan encrypted macros in PowerPoint Open XML presentations


      "This policy setting controls whether encrypted macros in Open XML documents be are required to be scanned with anti-virus software before being opened.  Note: The behavior will depend on whether the AV software uses the Microsoft Antivirus API. If you enable this policy setting, you may choose one of these options:
      -    Scan encrypted macros: encrypted macros are disabled unless anti-virus software is installed.  Encrypted macros are scanned by your anti-virus software when you attempt to open an encrypted workbook that contains macros.  Note: if your AV software does not use the Microsoft Antivirus API, macros will always be blocked.
      -    Scan if anti-virus software available: if anti-virus software is installed, scan the encrypted macros first before allowing them to load.  If anti-virus software is not available, allow encrypted macros to load.  Note: if your AV software does not use the Microsoft Antivirus API, macros will not be scanned and will not be blocked.
      Load macros without scanning: do not check for anti-virus software and allow macros to be loaded in an encrypted file.  Note: if your AV software does not use the Microsoft Antivirus API, macros will not be blocked.

       

      If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, the behavior will be similar to the ""Scan encrypted macros"" option."
