Warning – Microsofts Outlook app for iOS and Android breaks your company security

Regarding the blog of René Winkelmeyer there are security holes in the Outlook for iOS and Android clients which was released on Thursday, January 29th. René checked the client and found out following security breaks ( thanks to René for posting ):


File sharing capabilities

The app has built-in connectors to OneDrive, Dropbox and Google Drive. That means a user can setup his personal account within the app and share all mail attachments using those services. Or use files from those services within his company mail account. That’s a data security nightmare.

It doesn’t matter if you’re using a containerized solution like the Apple built-in separation of managed and unmanaged apps. The same applies to every other container. The communication is app-internal and you cannot control that.


Shared Exchange ActiveSync ID and device type

It gets even more worse. Each ActiveSync client normally has a unique ID for data synchronization. That allows administrators to distinguish a users devices. Micros…

IBM CCM doesn´t display new created folders or files

Image
Last week I had the issue, that I could not see a new created folder in the Connections CCM. The
browser looked the following:


But the created folder was correctly displayed in the MS Desktop Plugin:



After some investigation and also going through the logs of the CCM server, I found out, what caused the problem: it was the display option, why the file and the folder have not been displayed !! After switching from the preview list to the list option everything was displayed correctly:

Generating a keyring file with a third party CA SHA-2 cert using OpenSSL and KYRTool on a Windows workstation

Official Step-By-Step guide

1. Before you begin, note the following information about running KYRTool & OpenSSL

    If you have a command line parameter with spaces in it, such as the path to a file, the space can cause the command line to be read incorrectly, resulting in errors. This can affect running commands for both OpenSSL and KYRTool
    To include a space in a parameter, the parameter must be delimited with quotation marks. For example, if Notes were installed in the Program Files directory, then the command line for creating a keyring might look like this:

kyrtool ="c:\Program Files\IBM\Notes\notes.ini" create -k "c:\Program Files\IBM\Notes\data\keyring.kyr" -p password
