Selfcert.exe 2 sha values? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Home User Office 365.

    And NOT a DEV.

    Found Selfcert.exe it has sha1 and a sha2.

    If I open the certificate, I can assign what I want to it, I can remove the name of the certificate holder, in this case it states Microsoft Corporation, and insert a new text.

    I can remove the files abilityes and personla informations, like it was a jpg file from my personal camera.

    And I Wonder is it a hack on my computer?

  • Hi,

    Selfcert.exe is used to create a self-signing certificate to sign your Office macro. For more information, please visit Digitally sign your macro project

    This signature confirms that the VBA macro project originated from the certificate signer and has not been altered. When you add a digital signature to a VBA macro project (also known as code signing), you are supplying a verifiable signature that can vouch for the authenticity and integrity of the VBA macro project.
