    Sigh, this just never seems to stop. Luckily, I'm protected with Sanboxie.

    Ditto. Otherwise I'd be updating this stupid thing every week.

    Just a little note regarding something mentioned here

    Be aware that, if you download such files via a download manager, external to the web browser's, then the Office files will not open inside Office sandbox. They will open normally.

    Yes, Sandboxie here too... and what an overall relief to have such a powerful tool at my disposal.

    Note too, that this vulnerability involves infected Excel files sent via email that the recipient must then open. To be honest, it is becoming increasingly hard to find any sympathy for folks who blindly open attachments.
