New Word macro malware infects macOS and Windows
The malicious VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) code is buried in a Word document macro and automatically adapts its attack depending on the operating system used. Once installed, it can be used to download more payload files to your computer.
Because the attack is disguised as an innocent Word macro, it goes undetected until it is too late. If you’ve told your computer to open macros automatically, malicious code can be executed before you have any idea it’s there.
