A vulnerability recently addressed in Outlook for Android allows an attacker to steal information from the affected device.

The vulnerability, Microsoft reveals, resides in the manner in which Outlook for Android parses specifically crafted email messages. To exploit the flaw, an authenticated attacker needs to send a specially crafted email message to the victim.

“The attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could then perform cross-site scripting attacks on the affected systems and run scripts in the security context of the current user,” the software giant explains in an advisory.

Tracked as CVE-2019-1105, the vulnerability was addressed last week “by correcting how Outlook for Android parses specially crafted email messages.”
