MS Office Built-In Feature Could be Exploited to Create Self-Replicating Malware - Regedit GPO

Hi Guys

Could you explain me please how could I setup it in my GPO Buono suggests "In order to (partially) mitigate the vulnerability it is possible to move the AccessVBOM registry key from the HKCU hive to the HKLM, making it editable only by the system administrator."

from the GPO Editor, expand Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings. You should see a Registry option, where you can add keys and specify permissions. Note that this just allows you to manage with permissions; i.e. this is different from Group Policy Preferences (GPP), where you can actually set values. So to change the HKLM, for example, you need to use GPP. See https://blog.thesysadmins.co.uk/group-policy-preferences-1-deploying-registry-settings.html. You need to find the equivalent path in HKLM and create the named key and set the value required.
