Blank 11 hannah.e.righton – word doc or excel xls spreadsheet malware — 2 Comments

  1. I received this mail, opened as I was expecting a mail from someone I didnt know … it seemed to fit the bill.

    Opened on a mac, in word 2008 and I clicked open as opposed to disable macros

    Article mentions this may not affect mac ….. I’d like to make sure and what I may have done / the risk i’ve opened myself up to

    Is there a file of malware now sitting on my mac? Can I pass it on? Should I be doing something to cleanse my system?

    • You should be OK on a mac
      although the macro can potentially run on a mac, the downloaded malware is windows specific and will not run on a mac
