Leipzig, 26 May 2020 – the Federal Office for Information Security has issued a warning about two current security gaps in the Apple Mail app. These affect all iOS versions going back to iOS 6. A remedy is at hand with the Mobile Device Management solution from software manufacturer Deskcenter Solutions AG, which prevents hacker attacks.
The iOS Mail app was recently affected by two security gaps, which the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) classifies as very security-critical. As no patches are currently available for these two vulnerabilities, the BSI recommends avoiding use of the Apple Mail app until a security update is available from the manufacturer. Software manufacturer Deskcenter Solutions AG is helping companies in the short term with targeted measures to respond quickly to the vulnerabilities. An alternative mail app can be quickly and easily installed on all company devices thanks to the Deskcenter Mobile solution from the Mobile Device Management suite.
Deskcenter recommends taking the immediate step of using an another app, such as Outlook, to send emails. Deskcenter customers can do this very simply and easily by deploying the alternative mail app on the affected devices and updating it if necessary.
