There are two issues with the way Microsoft's Outlook application encrypts content on older versions of Android that could expose users' emails and email attachments.
Paolo Soto, a researcher with the security firm Include Security, said his team initially dug up the vulnerabilities in November 2013 and reported them to Microsoft in December.
