If you enable this policy setting, you can choose from four options for determining how the specified applications will warn the user about macros:
 
- Disable all with notification: The application displays the Trust Bar for all macros, whether signed or unsigned. This option enforces the default configuration in Office.
- Disable all except digitally signed macros: The application displays the Trust Bar for digitally signed macros, allowing users to enable them or leave them disabled. Any unsigned macros are disabled, and users are not notified.
- Disable all without notification: The application disables all macros, whether signed or unsigned, and does not notify users.
- Enable all macros (not recommended): All macros are enabled, whether signed or unsigned. This option can significantly reduce security by allowing dangerous code to run undetected.
 
If you disable this policy setting, "Disable all with notification" will be the default setting.
 
If you do not configure this policy setting, when users open files in the specified applications that contain VBA macros, the applications open the files with the macros disabled and display the Trust Bar with a warning that macros are present and have been disabled. Users can inspect and edit the files if appropriate, but cannot use any disabled functionality until they enable it by clicking "Enable Content" on the Trust Bar. If the user clicks "Enable Content", then the document is added as a trusted document.
 
Important: If "Disable all except digitally signed macros" is selected, users will not be able to open unsigned Access databases.
 
Also, note that Microsoft Office stores certificates for trusted publishers in the Internet Explorer trusted publisher store. Earlier versions of Microsoft Office stored trusted publisher certificate information (specifically, the certificate thumbprint) in a special Office trusted publisher store. Microsoft Office still reads trusted publisher certificate information from the Office trusted publisher store, but it does not write information to this store.
 
Therefore, if you created a list of trusted publishers in a previous version of Microsoft Office and you upgrade to Office, your trusted publisher list will still be recognized. However, any trusted publisher certificates that you add to the list will be stored in the Internet Explorer trusted publisher store.&lt;/VulnDiscussion&gt;&lt;FalsePositives&gt;&lt;/FalsePositives&gt;&lt;FalseNegatives&gt;&lt;/FalseNegatives&gt;&lt;Documentable&gt;false&lt;/Documentable&gt;&lt;Mitigations&gt;&lt;/Mitigations&gt;&lt;SeverityOverrideGuidance&gt;&lt;/SeverityOverrideGuidance&gt;&lt;PotentialImpacts&gt;&lt;/PotentialImpacts&gt;&lt;ThirdPartyTools&gt;&lt;/ThirdPartyTools&gt;&lt;MitigationControl&gt;&lt;/MitigationControl&gt;&lt;Responsibility&gt;&lt;/Responsibility&gt;&lt;IAControls&gt;&lt;/IAControls&gt;</description><reference><dc:title>DPMS Target Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus</dc:title><dc:publisher>DISA</dc:publisher><dc:type>DPMS Target</dc:type><dc:subject>Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus</dc:subject><dc:identifier>4099</dc:identifier></reference><ident system="http://cyber.mil/legacy">SV-108741</ident><ident system="http://cyber.mil/legacy">V-99637</ident><ident system="http://cyber.mil/cci">CCI-000381</ident><fixtext fixref="F-24943r442066_fix">Set User Configuration &gt;&gt; Administrative Templates &gt;&gt; Microsoft Access 2016 &gt;&gt; Application Settings &gt;&gt; Security &gt;&gt; Trust Center &gt;&gt; VBA Macro Notification Settings to "Disable all except digitally signed macros".</fixtext><fix id="F-24943r442066_fix" /><check system="C-24955r442065_chk"><check-content-ref href="Microsoft_Office_365_ProPlus_STIG.xml" name="M" /><check-content>Verify the policy value for User Configuration &gt;&gt; Administrative Templates &gt;&gt; Microsoft Access 2016 &gt;&gt; Application Settings &gt;&gt; Security &gt;&gt; Trust Center &gt;&gt; VBA Macro Notification Settings is set to "Disable all except digitally signed macros".

If you enable this policy setting, users can specify trusted locations on network shares or in other remote locations that are not under their direct control by selecting the "Allow Trusted Locations on my network (not recommended)" check box in the Trusted Locations section of the Trust Center. Content, code, and add-ins are allowed to load from trusted locations with minimal security and without prompting the user for permission.
 
If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, the selected application ignores any network locations listed in the Trusted Locations section of the Trust Center. Disabling this policy setting does not delete any network locations from the Trusted Locations list. Instead, it forces the selected application to treat the locations as non-trusted and prevents users from adding new network locations to the list.
 
If you also deploy Trusted Locations via Group Policy, you should verify whether any of them are remote locations. If any of them are remote locations and you do not allow remote locations via this policy setting, those policy keys that point to remote locations will be ignored on client computers.
 
Disabling this policy setting will cause disruption for users who add network locations to the Trusted Locations list. However, it is not recommended to enable this policy setting (as the "Allow Trusted Locations on my network (not recommended)" check box itself states), so in practice it should be possible to disable this policy setting in most situations without causing significant usability issues for most users.&lt;/VulnDiscussion&gt;&lt;FalsePositives&gt;&lt;/FalsePositives&gt;&lt;FalseNegatives&gt;&lt;/FalseNegatives&gt;&lt;Documentable&gt;false&lt;/Documentable&gt;&lt;Mitigations&gt;&lt;/Mitigations&gt;&lt;SeverityOverrideGuidance&gt;&lt;/SeverityOverrideGuidance&gt;&lt;PotentialImpacts&gt;&lt;/PotentialImpacts&gt;&lt;ThirdPartyTools&gt;&lt;/ThirdPartyTools&gt;&lt;MitigationControl&gt;&lt;/MitigationControl&gt;&lt;Responsibility&gt;&lt;/Responsibility&gt;&lt;IAControls&gt;&lt;/IAControls&gt;</description><reference><dc:title>DPMS Target Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus</dc:title><dc:publisher>DISA</dc:publisher><dc:type>DPMS Target</dc:type><dc:subject>Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus</dc:subject><dc:identifier>4099</dc:identifier></reference><ident system="http://cyber.mil/legacy">SV-108743</ident><ident system="http://cyber.mil/legacy">V-99639</ident><ident system="http://cyber.mil/cci">CCI-001662</ident><fixtext fixref="F-24944r442069_fix">Set the User Configuration &gt;&gt; Administrative Templates &gt;&gt; Microsoft Access 2016 &gt;&gt; Application Settings &gt;&gt; Security &gt;&gt; Trust Center &gt;&gt; Trusted Locations &gt;&gt; Allow trusted Locations on the network to "Disabled".</fixtext><fix id="F-24944r442069_fix" /><check system="C-24956r442068_chk"><check-content-ref href="Microsoft_Office_365_ProPlus_STIG.xml" name="M" /><check-content>Verify the policy for Set the User Configuration &gt;&gt; Administrative Templates &gt;&gt; Microsoft Access 2016 &gt;&gt; Application Settings &gt;&gt; Security &gt;&gt; Trust Center &gt;&gt; Trusted Locations &gt;&gt; Allow trusted Locations on the network is set to "Disabled".

If the feature is enabled for low trust documents, the feature will be enabled for all documents for which macros are enabled except:

ActiveX controls can adversely affect a computer directly. In addition, malicious code can be used to compromise an ActiveX control and attack a computer.
 
To indicate the safety of an ActiveX control, developers can denote them as Safe for Initialization (SFI). SFI indicates that a control is safe to open and run, and that it is not capable of causing a problem for any computer, regardless of whether it has persisted data values or not. If a control is not marked SFI, it is possible that the control could adversely affect a computer--or it could mean that the developers did not test the control in all situations and are not sure whether it might be compromised in the future. If you enable this policy setting, you can set the ActiveX security level to a number between 1 and 6. These security levels are as follows:
  
1. Regardless of how the control is marked, load it and use the persisted values (if any). This setting does not prompt the user.
 
2. If SFI, load the control in safe mode and use persisted values (if any). If not SFI, load in unsafe mode with persisted values (if any), or use the default (first-time initialization) settings. This level is similar to the default configuration, but does not prompt the user.
 
3. If SFI, load the control in unsafe mode and use persisted values (if any). If not SFI, prompt the user and advise them that it is marked unsafe. If the user chooses No at the prompt, do not load the control. Otherwise, load it with default (first-time initialization) settings.
 
4. If SFI, load the control in safe mode and use persisted values (if any). If not SFI, prompt the user and advise them that it is marked unsafe. If the user chooses No at the prompt, do not load the control. Otherwise, load it with default (first-time initialization) settings.
 
5. If SFI, load the control in unsafe mode and use persisted values (if any). If not SFI, prompt the user and advise them that it is marked unsafe. If the user chooses No at the prompt, do not load the control. Otherwise, load it with persisted values.
 
6. If SFI, load the control in safe mode and use persisted values (if any). If not SFI, prompt the user and advise them that it is marked unsafe. If the user chooses No at the prompt, do not load the control. Otherwise, load it with persisted values.
 
If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, if a control is marked SFI, the application loads the control in safe mode and uses persisted values (if any). If the control is not marked SFI, the application loads the control in unsafe mode with persisted values (if any), or uses the default (first-time initialization) settings. In both situations, the Message Bar informs users that the controls have been disabled and prompts them to respond.
 
Important: Some ActiveX controls do not respect the safe mode registry setting, and therefore might load persisted data even though you configure this setting to instruct the control to use safe mode. This setting only increases security for ActiveX controls that are accurately marked as SFI. In situations that involve malicious or poorly designed code, an ActiveX control might be inaccurately marked as SFI.&lt;/VulnDiscussion&gt;&lt;FalsePositives&gt;&lt;/FalsePositives&gt;&lt;FalseNegatives&gt;&lt;/FalseNegatives&gt;&lt;Documentable&gt;false&lt;/Documentable&gt;&lt;Mitigations&gt;&lt;/Mitigations&gt;&lt;SeverityOverrideGuidance&gt;&lt;/SeverityOverrideGuidance&gt;&lt;PotentialImpacts&gt;&lt;/PotentialImpacts&gt;&lt;ThirdPartyTools&gt;&lt;/ThirdPartyTools&gt;&lt;MitigationControl&gt;&lt;/MitigationControl&gt;&lt;Responsibility&gt;&lt;/Responsibility&gt;&lt;IAControls&gt;&lt;/IAControls&gt;</description><reference><dc:title>DPMS Target Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus</dc:title><dc:publisher>DISA</dc:publisher><dc:type>DPMS Target</dc:type><dc:subject>Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus</dc:subject><dc:identifier>4099</dc:identifier></reference><ident system="http://cyber.mil/legacy">SV-108753</ident><ident system="http://cyber.mil/legacy">V-99649</ident><ident system="http://cyber.mil/cci">CCI-002460</ident><fixtext fixref="F-24949r442084_fix">Set the policy value for User Configuration &gt;&gt; Administrative Templates &gt;&gt; Microsoft Office 2016 &gt;&gt; Security Settings "ActiveX Control Initialization" to "Enabled + 6".</fixtext><fix id="F-24949r442084_fix" /><check system="C-24961r442083_chk"><check-content-ref href="Microsoft_Office_365_ProPlus_STIG.xml" name="M" /><check-content>Verify the policy value for User Configuration &gt;&gt; Administrative Templates &gt;&gt; Microsoft Office 2016 &gt;&gt; Security Settings "ActiveX Control Initialization" is set to "Enabled (If SFI, load the control in safe mode and use persisted values (if any).

ActiveX controls are Component Object Model (COM) objects and have unrestricted access to users' computers. ActiveX controls can access the local file system and change the registry settings of the operating system. If a malicious user repurposes an ActiveX control to take over a user's computer, the effect could be significant. To help improve security, ActiveX developers can mark controls as SFI, which means that the developer states that the controls are safe to open and run and not capable of causing harm to any computers. If a control is not marked SFI, the control could adversely affect a computer, or the developers may not have tested the control in all situations and are not sure whether their control might be compromised at some future date. SFI controls run in safe mode, which limits their access to the computer. For example, a worksheet control can both read and write files when it is in unsafe mode, but perhaps only read from files when it is in safe mode. This functionality allows the control to be used in very powerful ways when safety was not important, but the control would still be safe for use in a Web page. If a control is not marked as SFI, it is marked UFI, which means that it is capable of affecting a user's computer. If UFI ActiveX controls are loaded, they are always loaded in unsafe mode.
  
If you enable this policy setting, you can choose from four options for loading controls in UserForms:
  
1. For a UFI or SFI signed control that supports safe and unsafe mode, load the control in unsafe mode. For an SFI signed control that only supports a safe mode configuration, load the control in safe mode. This option enforces the default configuration.
  
2. Users are prompted to determine how UserForm forms will load. The prompt only displays once per session within an application. When users respond to the prompt, loading continues based on whether the control is UFI or SFI:
  
- For a UFI signed control, if users respond Yes to the prompt, load the control in unsafe mode. If users respond No, load the control using the default properties.
- For an SFI signed control that supports both safe and unsafe modes, if users respond Yes to the prompt, load the control in unsafe mode. If users respond No, load the control using safe mode. If the SFI control can only support safe mode, load the control in safe mode. This option is the default configuration in the Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus release.
  
3. Users are prompted to determine how UserForm forms will load. The prompt only displays once per session within an application. When users respond to the prompt, loading continues based on whether the control is UFI or SFI:
  
- For a UFI signed control, if users respond Yes to the prompt, load the control in unsafe mode. If users respond No, load the control with its default properties.
- For an SFI signed control, load in safe mode.
  
4. For a UFI signed control, load with the default properties of the control. For an SFI signed control, load in safe mode (considered to be the safest mode).

2. "Block embedding/linking, allow other activation" prevents the Flash control from being loaded when directly referenced by the document, but does not prevent activation through another object.
3. "Allow all activation" restores Office's default behavior, allowing the Flash control to be activated.
 
Because this setting is not a true Group Policy setting and "tattoos" the registry, enabling the "Allow all activation" option is the only way to restore default behavior after either of the "Block" options has been applied.

If you enable this policy setting, users can specify trusted locations on network shares or in other remote locations that are not under their direct control by selecting the "Allow Trusted Locations on my network (not recommended)" check box in the Trusted Locations section of the Trust Center. Content, code, and add-ins are allowed to load from trusted locations with minimal security and without prompting the user for permission.
 
If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, the selected application ignores any network locations listed in the Trusted Locations section of the Trust Center. Disabling this policy setting does not delete any network locations from the Trusted Locations list. Instead, it forces the selected application to treat the locations as non-trusted and prevents users from adding new network locations to the list.
 
If you also deploy Trusted Locations via Group Policy, you should verify whether any of them are remote locations. If any of them are remote locations and you do not allow remote locations via this policy setting, those policy keys that point to remote locations will be ignored on client computers.
 
Disabling this policy setting will cause disruption for users who add network locations to the Trusted Locations list. However, it is not recommended to enable this policy setting (as the "Allow Trusted Locations on my network (not recommended)" check box itself states), so in practice it should be possible to disable this policy setting in most situations without causing significant usability issues for most users.&lt;/VulnDiscussion&gt;&lt;FalsePositives&gt;&lt;/FalsePositives&gt;&lt;FalseNegatives&gt;&lt;/FalseNegatives&gt;&lt;Documentable&gt;false&lt;/Documentable&gt;&lt;Mitigations&gt;&lt;/Mitigations&gt;&lt;SeverityOverrideGuidance&gt;&lt;/SeverityOverrideGuidance&gt;&lt;PotentialImpacts&gt;&lt;/PotentialImpacts&gt;&lt;ThirdPartyTools&gt;&lt;/ThirdPartyTools&gt;&lt;MitigationControl&gt;&lt;/MitigationControl&gt;&lt;Responsibility&gt;&lt;/Responsibility&gt;&lt;IAControls&gt;&lt;/IAControls&gt;</description><reference><dc:title>DPMS Target Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus</dc:title><dc:publisher>DISA</dc:publisher><dc:type>DPMS Target</dc:type><dc:subject>Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus</dc:subject><dc:identifier>4099</dc:identifier></reference><ident system="http://cyber.mil/legacy">SV-108799</ident><ident system="http://cyber.mil/legacy">V-99695</ident><ident system="http://cyber.mil/cci">CCI-001170</ident><fixtext fixref="F-24971r442150_fix">Set the policy value for User Configuration &gt;&gt; Administrative Templates &gt;&gt; Microsoft Excel 2016 &gt;&gt; Excel Options &gt;&gt; Security &gt;&gt; Trust Center &gt;&gt; Trusted Locations "Allow Trusted Locations on the network" to "Disabled".</fixtext><fix id="F-24971r442150_fix" /><check system="C-24983r442149_chk"><check-content-ref href="Microsoft_Office_365_ProPlus_STIG.xml" name="M" /><check-content>Verify the policy value for User Configuration &gt;&gt; Administrative Templates &gt;&gt; Microsoft Excel 2016 &gt;&gt; Excel Options &gt;&gt; Security &gt;&gt; Trust Center &gt;&gt; Trusted Locations "Allow Trusted Locations on the network" is set to "Disabled".

If you disable this policy setting, the “Disable all with notification” will be the default setting.
 
If you do not configure this policy setting, when users open workbooks that contain WEBSERVICE functions, Excel will open the files with the WEBSERVICE functions disabled and display the Trust Bar with a warning that WEBSERVICE functions are present and have been disabled.

The Kerberos protocol is the more secure authentication method and is supported on Windows 2000 Server and later versions. NTLM authentication is supported in pre-Windows 2000 environments.
 
If you enable this policy setting, you can choose from three different options for controlling how Outlook authenticates with Microsoft Exchange Server:
 
- Kerberos/NTLM password authentication. Outlook attempts to authenticate using the Kerberos authentication protocol. If this attempt fails, Outlook attempts to authenticate using NTLM. This option is the default configuration.
- Kerberos password authentication. Outlook attempts to authenticate using the Kerberos protocol only.
- NTLM password authentication. Outlook attempts to authenticate using NTLM only.
 
If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, Outlook will attempt to authenticate using the Kerberos authentication protocol.

If you enable this policy setting, you can choose from four options for handling macros in Outlook:
- Always warn. This option corresponds to the "Warnings for all macros" option in the "Macro Security" section of the Outlook Trust Center. Outlook disables all macros that are not opened from a trusted location, even if the macros are signed by a trusted publisher. For each disabled macro, Outlook displays a security alert dialog box with information about the macro and its digital signature (if present), and allows users to enable the macro or leave it disabled.
- Never warn, disable all. This option corresponds to the "No warnings and disable all macros" option in the Trust Center. Outlook disables all macros that are not opened from trusted locations, and does not notify users.
- Warning for signed, disable unsigned. This option corresponds to the "Warnings for signed macros; all unsigned macros are disabled" option in the Trust Center. Outlook handles macros as follows:
--If a macro is digitally signed by a trusted publisher, the macro can run if the user has already trusted the publisher.
--If a macro has a valid signature from a publisher that the user has not trusted, the security alert dialog box for the macro lets the user choose whether to enable the macro for the current session, disable the macro for the current session, or to add the publisher to the Trusted Publishers list so that it will run without prompting the user in the future.
--If a macro does not have a valid signature, Outlook disables it without prompting the user, unless it is opened from a trusted location.
This option is the default configuration in Outlook.
- No security check. This option corresponds to the "No security check for macros (Not recommended)" option in the Trust Center. Outlook runs all macros without prompting users. This configuration makes users' computers vulnerable to potentially malicious code and is not recommended.
 
If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, the behavior is the equivalent of Enabled -- Warning for signed, disable unsigned.&lt;/VulnDiscussion&gt;&lt;FalsePositives&gt;&lt;/FalsePositives&gt;&lt;FalseNegatives&gt;&lt;/FalseNegatives&gt;&lt;Documentable&gt;false&lt;/Documentable&gt;&lt;Mitigations&gt;&lt;/Mitigations&gt;&lt;SeverityOverrideGuidance&gt;&lt;/SeverityOverrideGuidance&gt;&lt;PotentialImpacts&gt;&lt;/PotentialImpacts&gt;&lt;ThirdPartyTools&gt;&lt;/ThirdPartyTools&gt;&lt;MitigationControl&gt;&lt;/MitigationControl&gt;&lt;Responsibility&gt;&lt;/Responsibility&gt;&lt;IAControls&gt;&lt;/IAControls&gt;</description><reference><dc:title>DPMS Target Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus</dc:title><dc:publisher>DISA</dc:publisher><dc:type>DPMS Target</dc:type><dc:subject>Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus</dc:subject><dc:identifier>4099</dc:identifier></reference><ident system="http://cyber.mil/legacy">SV-108925</ident><ident system="http://cyber.mil/legacy">V-99821</ident><ident system="http://cyber.mil/cci">CCI-001662</ident><fixtext fixref="F-25034r442339_fix">Set the policy value for User Configuration &gt;&gt; Administrative Templates &gt;&gt; Microsoft Outlook 2016 &gt;&gt; Security &gt;&gt; Trust Center &gt;&gt; Security setting for macros must to "Enabled: Warn for signed, disable unsigned".</fixtext><fix id="F-25034r442339_fix" /><check system="C-25046r442338_chk"><check-content-ref href="Microsoft_Office_365_ProPlus_STIG.xml" name="M" /><check-content>Verify the policy value for User Configuration &gt;&gt; Administrative Templates &gt;&gt; Microsoft Outlook 2016 &gt;&gt; Security &gt;&gt; Trust Center &gt;&gt; Security setting for macros must be set to "Enabled: Warn for signed, disable unsigned".

If you enable this policy setting, users can specify trusted locations on network shares or in other remote locations that are not under their direct control by clicking the "Add new location" button in the Trusted Locations section of the Trust Center. Content, code, and add-ins are allowed to load from trusted locations with minimal security and without prompting the user for permission.
 
If you disable this policy setting, the selected application ignores any network locations listed in the Trusted Locations section of the Trust Center.
 
If you also deploy Trusted Locations via Group Policy, you should verify whether any of them are remote locations. If any of them are remote locations and you do not allow remote locations via this policy setting, those policy keys that point to remote locations will be ignored on client computers.
 
Disabling this policy setting does not delete any network locations from the Trusted Locations list, but causes disruption for users who add network locations to the Trusted Locations list. Users are also prevented from adding new network locations to the Trusted Locations list in the Trust Center. We recommended that you do not enable this policy setting as the "Allow Trusted Locations on my network (not recommended)" check box also states. Therefore, in practice, it should be possible to disable this policy setting in most situations without causing significant usability issues for most users.
 
If you do not enable this policy setting, users can select the "Allow Trusted Locations on my network (not recommended)" check box if desired and then specify trusted locations by clicking the "Add new location" button.&lt;/VulnDiscussion&gt;&lt;FalsePositives&gt;&lt;/FalsePositives&gt;&lt;FalseNegatives&gt;&lt;/FalseNegatives&gt;&lt;Documentable&gt;false&lt;/Documentable&gt;&lt;Mitigations&gt;&lt;/Mitigations&gt;&lt;SeverityOverrideGuidance&gt;&lt;/SeverityOverrideGuidance&gt;&lt;PotentialImpacts&gt;&lt;/PotentialImpacts&gt;&lt;ThirdPartyTools&gt;&lt;/ThirdPartyTools&gt;&lt;MitigationControl&gt;&lt;/MitigationControl&gt;&lt;Responsibility&gt;&lt;/Responsibility&gt;&lt;IAControls&gt;&lt;/IAControls&gt;</description><reference><dc:title>DPMS Target Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus</dc:title><dc:publisher>DISA</dc:publisher><dc:type>DPMS Target</dc:type><dc:subject>Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus</dc:subject><dc:identifier>4099</dc:identifier></reference><ident system="http://cyber.mil/legacy">SV-108955</ident><ident system="http://cyber.mil/legacy">V-99851</ident><ident system="http://cyber.mil/cci">CCI-001170</ident><fixtext fixref="F-25035r442342_fix">Set the policy value for User Configuration &gt;&gt; Administrative Templates &gt;&gt; Microsoft Project 2016 &gt;&gt; Project Options &gt;&gt; Security &gt;&gt; Trust Center &gt;&gt; Allow Trusted Locations on the network to "Disabled".</fixtext><fix id="F-25035r442342_fix" /><check system="C-25047r442341_chk"><check-content-ref href="Microsoft_Office_365_ProPlus_STIG.xml" name="M" /><check-content>Verify the policy value for User Configuration &gt;&gt; Administrative Templates &gt;&gt; Microsoft Project 2016 &gt;&gt; Project Options &gt;&gt; Security &gt;&gt; Trust Center &gt;&gt; Allow Trusted Locations on the network is set to "Disabled".

If you enable this policy setting, you can choose from four options for determining how the specified applications will warn the user about macros:
 
- Disable all with notification: The application displays the Trust Bar for all macros, whether signed or unsigned. This option enforces the default configuration in Office.
- Disable all except digitally signed macros: The application displays the Trust Bar for digitally signed macros, allowing users to enable them or leave them disabled. Any unsigned macros are disabled, and users are not notified.
- Disable all without notification: The application disables all macros, whether signed or unsigned, and does not notify users.
- Enable all macros (not recommended): All macros are enabled, whether signed or unsigned. This option can significantly reduce security by allowing dangerous code to run undetected.
 
If you disable this policy setting, "Disable all with notification" will be the default setting.
 
If you do not configure this policy setting, when users open files in the specified applications that contain VBA macros, the applications open the files with the macros disabled and display the Trust Bar with a warning that macros are present and have been disabled. Users can inspect and edit the files if appropriate, but cannot use any disabled functionality until they enable it by clicking "Enable Content" on the Trust Bar. If the user clicks "Enable Content", then the document is added as a trusted document.
 
Important: If "Disable all except digitally signed macros" is selected, users will not be able to open unsigned Access databases.
 
Also, note that Microsoft Office stores certificates for trusted publishers in the Internet Explorer trusted publisher store. Earlier versions of Microsoft Office stored trusted publisher certificate information (specifically, the certificate thumbprint) in a special Office trusted publisher store. Microsoft Office still reads trusted publisher certificate information from the Office trusted publisher store, but it does not write information to this store.

If you enable this policy setting, you can choose from four options for determining how the specified applications will warn the user about macros:
  
- Disable all with notification: The application displays the Trust Bar for all macros, whether signed or unsigned. This option enforces the default configuration in Office.
- Disable all except digitally signed macros: The application displays the Trust Bar for digitally signed macros, allowing users to enable them or leave them disabled. Any unsigned macros are disabled, and users are not notified.
- Disable all without notification: The application disables all macros, whether signed or unsigned, and does not notify users.
- Enable all macros (not recommended): All macros are enabled, whether signed or unsigned. This option can significantly reduce security by allowing dangerous code to run undetected.
  
If you disable this policy setting, "Disable all with notification" will be the default setting.
  
If you do not configure this policy setting, when users open files in the specified applications that contain VBA macros, the applications open the files with the macros disabled and display the Trust Bar with a warning that macros are present and have been disabled. Users can inspect and edit the files if appropriate, but cannot use any disabled functionality until they enable it by clicking "Enable Content" on the Trust Bar. If the user clicks "Enable Content", then the document is added as a trusted document.
  
Important: If "Disable all except digitally signed macros" is selected, users will not be able to open unsigned Access databases.
  
Also, note that Microsoft Office stores certificates for trusted publishers in the Internet Explorer trusted publisher store. Earlier versions of Microsoft Office stored trusted publisher certificate information (specifically, the certificate thumbprint) in a special Office trusted publisher store. Microsoft Office still reads trusted publisher certificate information from the Office trusted publisher store, but it does not write information to this store.

If you enable this policy setting, users can specify trusted locations on network shares or in other remote locations that are not under their direct control by clicking the "Add new location" button in the Trusted Locations section of the Trust Center. Content, code, and add-ins are allowed to load from trusted locations with minimal security and without prompting the user for permission.
 
If you disable this policy setting, the selected application ignores any network locations listed in the Trusted Locations section of the Trust Center.
 
If you also deploy Trusted Locations via Group Policy, you should verify whether any of them are remote locations. If any of them are remote locations and you do not allow remote locations via this policy setting, those policy keys that point to remote locations will be ignored on client computers.
 
Disabling this policy setting does not delete any network locations from the Trusted Locations list, but causes disruption for users who add network locations to the Trusted Locations list. Users are also prevented from adding new network locations to the Trusted Locations list in the Trust Center. We recommended that you do not enable this policy setting as the "Allow Trusted Locations on my network (not recommended)" check box also states. Therefore, in practice, it should be possible to disable this policy setting in most situations without causing significant usability issues for most users.
 
If you do not enable this policy setting, users can select the "Allow Trusted Locations on my network (not recommended)" check box if desired and then specify trusted locations by clicking the "Add new location" button.&lt;/VulnDiscussion&gt;&lt;FalsePositives&gt;&lt;/FalsePositives&gt;&lt;FalseNegatives&gt;&lt;/FalseNegatives&gt;&lt;Documentable&gt;false&lt;/Documentable&gt;&lt;Mitigations&gt;&lt;/Mitigations&gt;&lt;SeverityOverrideGuidance&gt;&lt;/SeverityOverrideGuidance&gt;&lt;PotentialImpacts&gt;&lt;/PotentialImpacts&gt;&lt;ThirdPartyTools&gt;&lt;/ThirdPartyTools&gt;&lt;MitigationControl&gt;&lt;/MitigationControl&gt;&lt;Responsibility&gt;&lt;/Responsibility&gt;&lt;IAControls&gt;&lt;/IAControls&gt;</description><reference><dc:title>DPMS Target Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus</dc:title><dc:publisher>DISA</dc:publisher><dc:type>DPMS Target</dc:type><dc:subject>Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus</dc:subject><dc:identifier>4099</dc:identifier></reference><ident system="http://cyber.mil/legacy">SV-109013</ident><ident system="http://cyber.mil/legacy">V-99909</ident><ident system="http://cyber.mil/cci">CCI-001170</ident><fixtext fixref="F-25077r442468_fix">Set the policy value for User Configuration &gt;&gt; Administrative Templates &gt;&gt; Microsoft Word 2016 &gt;&gt; Word Options &gt;&gt; Security &gt;&gt; Trust Center &gt;&gt; Trusted Locations &gt;&gt; Allow Trusted Locations on the network to "Disabled".</fixtext><fix id="F-25077r442468_fix" /><check system="C-25089r442467_chk"><check-content-ref href="Microsoft_Office_365_ProPlus_STIG.xml" name="M" /><check-content>Verify the policy value for User Configuration &gt;&gt; Administrative Templates &gt;&gt; Microsoft Word 2016 &gt;&gt; Word Options &gt;&gt; Security &gt;&gt; Trust Center &gt;&gt; Trusted Locations &gt;&gt; Allow Trusted Locations on the network is set to "Disabled".
