passwords in excel
Posted on 2013-11-26
If a user has NTFS read, write, execute permissions to a spreadsheet (password protected), can they still delete the excel xlsx file? Or does the fact they have a password on the spreadsheet mitigate if a user can delete the file or not (not sure if there are numerous types of password one for access or one for stuff like move/delete etc)?
Are excel passwords still deemed to be quite weak and easily cracked - i.e. are NTFS more effeective than excel passwords for security.
