FYI - Don't click on macros in excel sheets if you don't want to get hacked

If you open a new excel file from someone you don't know, don't click on any macro. There is a very high chance, that you'll get a virus, malware, backdoor logger or any other bad hacking related stuff through that action.

Many firewalls can't detect that. So be warned.

 

I noticed this on that job post:

DO NOT OPEN THE FILE AND DON'T CLICK ON ANY MACRO!

I also received two interview requests containing an attachment with macros. At the same time (4:23PM) on Thursday and Friday, from two different recruiters. 

 

Can someone please check this?
