VBScript and security issues with GetObject

I am trying to invoke an Automatiom method from a third party app (Documentum) from VBScript.  When I execute the code, I get the following error:  "Object not safe for scripting".  This is from IE3.02

The code works fine from within VB 5.0

Code below:
---
Sub Button_Click
Dim dmObj
Set dmObj = GetObject(, "Documentum.Workspace32")

dmObj.dmAPIExec("domenu,c,menubar,dc_new_doc_mthd")

End Sub

Well, only controls that do not write to the harddisk or the registry are considered "safe". Those safe controls are marked specially and can be used in any IE-setup.
If you want to use "non-secure" controls anyway, the user has to set the IE-security to a lower level (medium or low)

So all someone has to do is mark the object as "Safe for scripting" and it will work?

That doesn't sound like a very good security model.
