When a open a certain DOC file, it opens in protected view. The message says
Protected View: Office has detected a problem with this file. Editing it may harm your computer. Click for more details
but gives me no hint as to what specific problem there is with this file or what specific risk there is if I edit this file.
Microsoft says that this means "the file didnxe2x80x99t pass file validation" but gives no more details.
Question: How do I find out what specifically the problem with this file is -- what specifically did Word not like in it?
In my case the file has no additional data streams (
dir /R) and seemingly no macros (or Protected View might not show them).
My question is not how to open this file, or what protected view is, or how to disable protected view.
My question is also not whether it is good practice not to open this file (or any files at all). I do need to open it, but I want to know the specific risk or specific cleaning actions after I open it.
