Microsoft warns that Macro viruses are back

Microsoft is warning that macro viruses are back and constitute the “new future of malware”, according to a story in the UK register, here.

I recall the controversy over macro viruses back in the 1990s, even the so-called “Concept” virus in 1996 that did nothing but caused companies to clean their servers.  And I would get irritated when people kept sending Word attachments.  I though, put it on the web in html and send me a link.  That was safer then, not necessarily so now.
