US-Cert warning of increased risk from Macro-based malware. Nothing new here, but I’ve seen a marked increase of external intrusion attempts in the last few months. Maybe it’s because of where I work (financial services) , but it seems to me the bad guys are working overtime to get to people.

CERT Australia’s recommendations on macro security. ┬áBasically, disable MS Office Macros. ┬áNot sure if that’s practical for the enterprise, but for external documents, extreme caution must be taken.
