Enterprise Capture Import Server and Microsoft Office Macros (Doc ID 2127129.1)

Last updated on JUNE 28, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Enterprise Capture - Version 11.1.1.8.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Are there any prevention mechanisms/rules built within the Enterprise Capture Import Server to reduce the chance of an unsecure email being opened and processed through Capture? 

e.g.  With multiple Email Provider batch jobs configured to process emails sent to specific mailboxes from external vendors etc.  As part the of the batch setup settings, *.DOC;*.DOCX;*.XLS;*.XLS files can be among the file types accepted for import.  These types of documents could have macros.

 Is there something built into Import Server, or that can be added to Import Server, so whenever processing these Office attachments, the macros are prevented from executing?
