Users should always be cautious when receiving Word documents from an unknown source. Documents should not be opened unless received from a trusted source. Even if the source is trusted, there is a chance that it contains a malicious link in the place of a YouTube video. If there is a YouTube video that needs to be shared, the receiver should always request the video ID and go to that video through the YouTube website, rather than click a link in the Word document for the video. Companies can also block Word documents from being sent that include the “embeddedHTML” tag within the document.xml file, but this may cause issues for the company. Though requesting the video ID and going to YouTube separately may take more time, it will stop users from clicking any malicious links inside the document and prevent the user from getting infected.
