CSV vulnerability explained

Title: CSV vulnerability explained

How can CSV files be affected?

Well, technically CSV files are text files - the purpose of a CSV is in its name - Comma Separated Values. The issue is actually a combination of spreadsheet software interpreting values as formulas (thus no longer treating values as plain text) and the tendency of users to ignore security prompts - or to agree to terms and conditions without scrolling through :-)
