In this way when a macro so simple as this 'Badbunny-A' usually can not touch our data, and can not do a 'rm -Rf $HOME', which for many of us in more catastrophic than a corrupted os. How many do this? I think that none, here including myself ....
By the way, is only a openoffice macro? Hmmm ... i want to see her source code ... maybe is GPL'ed!?
First off, most linux users aren't stupid enough to open crap they don't know or understand.
Second off, As long as you keep your software up-to-date there will always be patches.
That is the beauty of opensource, freedom, and linux.

Do the malware programmers destroy the data on windows users computers? No. The data on the harddrive is valuable. It contains information about you, and they want to extract that information not destroy it.
