    VBA Backdoor

    geez..it's been a year an a half since i posted...anything new round here??

    Spent most of the time programming Access apps..(condolences can be sent directly to me)

    A question from a colleague regarding the VBA Backdoor "feature" that abounds on the net in the guise of password recovery tools

    He's concerned about hardening his app and is concerned that this "feature" will make his security precautions irrelevant

    anyone know the specific mechanics of this "feature"....just another m$ exploit?...undocumented backdoor...or what...any ways to prevent it?

    tia
