    I am doing some research on the Microsoft Excel/Powerpoint macro
    vulnerability.

    Does anyone have any sample malicious Excel or Powerpoint macros that
    work with Microsoft Office versions of Excel and Powerpoint 2000 or
    newer or have any info on where to get examples? I am having a hard
    time tracking down some real concrete proof of this vulnerability.

    This vulnerability could enable a user to create specially formed Excel
    or PowerPoint files that would bypass macro security and execute
    automatically when the document is opened. Examples of this macro
    vulnerability could allow an attacker to take actions such as changing
    or deleting data, communicating with web sites, or changing the macro
    security settings.

    Thanks,

    Andrew
