Macros aren't required for that to work, due to the fact that the link to the actual infection is included in the presentation.
As stated in the article, using Protected View stops the process. Setting up Protected View in Powerpoint is simple, but the number of steps, and the actual steps, required is different depending on what version of Powerpoint you're using,
OpenOffice 4.1.6 and LibreOffice 6.0.6.2 on Windows 7 Pro & Ultimate
