A bit over a month ago René Winkelmeyer stirred up some dust with his discovery and blog post about the security issue with the new Outlook iOS/Android App. Shortly after his post, his colleague Detlev Pöttgen posted an easy solution to prevent the app from connecting to the Traveler server on his blog.
Because of the big security issue with this app, I’ve sent out an email, (yes, email, get over it) to our customers with the information about René’s discovery, Detlev’s solution and the recommendation to implement it as soon as possible.
The feedback has been very positive. What astonished me was that most customers had not heard about the issue at all.
Many customers replied and were thankful for the information and solution provided and I would like to forward this “thank you” to René and Detlev, great work guys.
