We are using Aspose Words (for Java) to convert Word documents to PDF. The source of these Word documents is in general unknown, so these Word documents may contain malicious macros.
I was wondering what the impact of malicious macros in Word documents can be on the PDF conversion.
- How does the Word -> PDF converter deal with macros? Do macros get executed during conversion?
- Are there any risks involved when converting Word documents with macros to PDF?
- Can macro’s be disabled before converting?
Any information on how the PDF converter deals with macros is very welcome…
