Office 12 XML format will ease virus detection
Recent announcement of new XML document format that will be supported by Office 12 – Scobleizer: Microsoft Geek Blogger – will make life easier for anti virus vendors that work very hard to look for viruses in current proprietary MS-Word file format. Virus writers will find it very hard to hide in a text file format.
Good move by Microsoft for everyone! This just exemplifies how openness in technology makes everyone's life easier.
