The current workarounds include:
1. Roll back the Excel update causing the issue, i.e. KB3115322 (Excel 2010) / KB3115262 (Excel 2013) / KB3115272 (Excel
2016) 
OR
2. Uncheck the two Protected View options below in Excel.
File > Options > Trust Center > Trust Center Settings, uncheck the first two "enable" boxes.
 
OR
3. Instead of disabling Protected View for all, a specific folder could be added as an Excel Trusted folder to prevent the
problem, then users can download the spreadsheet to that folder first, and open it, using the Trusted Locations capabilities in
Excel 2010, 2013, and 2016 via File >Options >Trust Center >Trust Center Settings >Trusted Locations.
Users can save the web html file to a trusted location on the local machine (Excel comes with a set of default trust locations). If you do not see
the local folder location you trust for these files, then press "Add new location" button and add it in the Trusted Location
dialog. If the HTML document is in a trusted location, it will not be blocked.
  
OR
4. If the file has been downloaded previously, users can do the following to open it:
Right-click on the file and choose Properties.  On the General tab, click Unblock.  Click OK
Oracle will update this document as more information becomes available.
