What does this mean?

MS Office documents carry 80% of all malware because they are intentionally complex, in order to perpetuate user lock-in (the more complex the document, the lower the chances that third party software such as LibreOffice is able to interoperate). The hidden complexity is strictly related to the way OOXML - MS Office pseudo-standard format - has been intentionally developed. So, this means that switching from OOXML to ODF - LibreOffice standard document format - would reduce security issues by a significant percentage.
