steven36 posted a topic in Security & Privacy NewsSuccessful exploitation allows attackers to steal potentially sensitive information, change appearance of the web page, and perform phishing, spoofing and drive-by-download attacks. Users of the Microsoft Outlook for Android app should update their apps to avoid a range of attacks. The bug (CVE-2019-1460) would allow an attacker to perform cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks on the affected systems and run scripts in the security context of the current user, according to Microsoft’s advisory on the bug. XSS occurs when malicious parties inject client-side scripts into web pages, which trick the unsuspecting user’s browser into thinking that the script came from a trusted source. In this case, the computing giant said that the issue exists in the way Microsoft Outlook for Android software parses specifically crafted email messages – thus, an attacker could exploit the vulnerability by sending just such an email. Czech firm Cybersecurity Help said in a posting this week that the problem was an “Improper Neutralization of Input During Web Page Generation” problem that exists due to insufficient sanitization of user-supplied data. The adversary would need to be authenticated to the same network as the potential victim in order to carry out an attack, Microsoft said. A write-up by Symantec said that an attacker can exploit this issue to conduct spoofing attacks, while Cybersecurity Help added that an attacker could “steal potentially sensitive information, change appearance of the web page, perform phishing and drive-by-download attacks.” Users should ensure that they have the latest version of the app, and update it manually if they haven’t received an auto-update. Beyond installing that update, Symantec also noted that mitigation includes running the software as a nonprivileged user with minimal access rights. Researcher Rafael Pablos was credited with finding the bug, which Microsoft rates as “important” in severity. It’s listed as having a 5.6 out of 10 severity rating on the CVSS v.3 vulnerability rating scale. Source
The AchieVer posted a topic in Mobile NewsLatest Microsoft Outlook for Android Brings Highly Anticipated Improvements Microsoft Outlook continues to be the number one email client on both Android and iOS, and the fast pace that Microsoft has embraced for new updates is one of the main reasons. This week, for instance, Microsoft released another significant update for Outlook, as the app evolves with new features and refinements on the platform. This latest update brings Outlook for Android to version 3.0.67, and one of the biggest additions concerns the home screen. Beginning with this release, users can add their inbox and calendar to the home screen, so it’s much faster and easier now to access emails and information about the next appointments. When it comes to the home screen, there’s more to discover in this update. Outlook now includes widget refinements too, so the email and calendar widgets now come with what Microsoft describes as a “beautiful onboard screen” and further tweaks for easy scanning.Update available nowAlso on the home screen, users can add a 1x1 email shortcut for a specific account. Obviously, this feature is particularly useful if you have more than one account, as this shortcut lets you launch Outlook directly to the inbox that you want to check. So for example, if you use Outlook with a work and a personal account, you can use this new feature to create a shortcut to the inbox of any of them. This means you no longer have to launch Outlook and then manually open the account you want, as you can do the whole thing right from the home screen. Source
