MC322553 (Updated) Microsoft Office default change – Blocking VBA macros in files from the internet Updated July 07, 2022: Based on feedback, we’re rolling back this change from Current Channel. We appreciate the feedback we’ve received so far, and we’re working to make improvements in this experience. We’ll provide another update when we’re ready to release again to Current Channel. Thank you.

VBA macros are a common way for malicious actors to gain access to deploy malware and ransomware. To help improve security, we are changing the behavior of Office applications to now block macros in files from the internet. Learn more in this blog post.

This change only affects Office on devices running Windows and only affects the following applications: Access, Excel, PowerPoint, Visio, and Word.

Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 88883

Timing: We will communicate a new timeline via Message center.

Action: Review and assess impact

Updated July 20, 2022: We're resuming the rollout of this change in Current Channel. Based on our review of customer feedback, we've made updates to both our end user and our admin documentation to make clearer what options you have for different scenarios. For example, what to do if your users have files on SharePoint or files on a network share. Please refer to the following documentation:

For end users, A potentially dangerous macro has been blocked

For IT admins, Macros from the internet will be blocked by default in Office

If you ever enabled or disabled the Block macros from running in Office files from the Internet policy, your organization will not be affected by this change.

Thank you.

MC362283 (Updated) Updates to the Zero-hour auto purge (ZAP) alerts Updated June 23, 2022: We have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.

We will be updating the current zero-hour auto purge (ZAP) alerts and introduce a new ZAP alert that will notify you if a message has not been removed by ZAP.

Updates to the ZAP alerts will include:

Scoping the success ZAP alerts for only ZAP related scenarios. You will no longer be alerted as part of the ZAP alert for Dynamic Delivery scenarios.

A new failure ZAP alert is being introduced. You will receive an alert when a message was not successfully removed from the mailbox. Manual action will be required to remediate the message. The alert will be correlated and linked to both Automated Investigation and Response (AIR) and Incidents. The alert will be on by default and can be configured in alert policies.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 93206.

[When this will happen:]

We expect these updates to roll out in late June (previously mid-June) and expect to be complete by mid-August (previously mid-July).
