SendCrashReportsEvenWithTelemetryDisabled
BooleanYesThis will stop your client devices sending us usage telemetry and asking questions to your users, but if the app crashes, we'll still invoke our Error Reporting dialog and get the call-stack back here so we can see if you're running into problems. The issue here is that if you don't enable crash reporting, we are completely blind as to whether folks out there are having problems or not. Relevant for those who disable telemetry through the SendAllTelemetryEnabled key.defaults write com.microsoft.Excel SendCrashReportsEvenWithTelemetryDisabled -bool TRUE

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/deployoffice/mac/set-preference-default-password-excel
33
Allcom.microsoft.officeAllowVisualBasicToBindToSystemBooleanYes15.31FALSEThe AllowVisualBasicToBindToSystem setting determines if macros are allowed to use a DECLARE to bind to the system()
OS API. This API allows macros to execute arbitrary external processes and pass them arbitrary data on the command line.
The default value for this setting disallows the binding, as the system() API should not be used. When this setting is set to NO, macros that attempt to use system() will fail with an error at the point where system() is invoked.
defaults write com.microsoft.office AllowVisualBasicToBindToSystem -bool FALSE

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/deployoffice/privacy/mac-privacy-preferences
37
Allcom.microsoft.officeDisableVisualBasicExternalDylibsBooleanYes15.31FALSEThe DisableVisualBasicExternalDylibs setting determines if macros are allowed to use a
DECLARE statement to bind a Visual Basic symbol name to an external procedure in the local OS. The
default value for this setting is to allow binding to external dylibs because many legitimate 3rd party
addin vendors use this feature of Visual Basic to add and extend features in Office for Mac. When this setting is set to NO, macros that attempt to use a DECLARE statement will fail with an error at the point where the external procedure is invoked.
defaults write com.microsoft.office DisableVisualBasicExternalDylibs -bool FALSE
https://macadmins.software/docs/VBSecurityControls.pdf
38
Allcom.microsoft.officeDisableVisualBasicMacScriptBooleanYes16.16FALSEThe DisableVisualBasicMacScript setting determines if macros are allowed to invoke the MacScript() Visual Basic API. This API allows macros to execute arbitrary processes via AppleScript by including “do shell script ...” in the AppleScript code.
The default value for this setting allows using MacScript, as there are a number of legitimate uses of AppleScript that do not rely on external processes. When this setting is set to NO, macros that attempt to use MacScript will fail with an error at the point where MacScript is invoked.
defaults write com.microsoft.office DisableVisualBasicMacScript -bool FALSE
https://macadmins.software/docs/VBSecurityControls.pdf
39
Allcom.microsoft.officeDisableVisualBasicToBindToPopenBooleanYes16.16FALSEThe DisableVisualBasicToBindToPopen setting determines if macros are allowed to use a DECLARE to bind to the popen() OS API. This API allows macros to execute arbitrary external processes and pass them arbitrary data on the command line.
The default value for this setting allows the binding, as at least one 3rd party vendor uses popen to communicate with their own code. When this setting is set to NO, macros that attempt to use popen() will fail with an error at the point where popen() is invoked.
defaults write com.microsoft.office DisableVisualBasicToBindToPopen -bool FALSE
https://macadmins.software/docs/VBSecurityControls.pdf
