Microsoft Teams fixes vulnerability that hijacked user data using a GI

Apr 28, 2020 16:13 IST

Microsoft has fixed a vulnerability in its videoconferencing service, Teams, that put an account and the associated computer's data at risk with the help of a GIF. The security flaw, which was uncovered by security researchers at CyberArk last month, was present in both the desktop and web browser versions of Microsoft Teams. All the user had to do was view a specific GIF and the attacker would steal security tokens and mine the victim’s data to read and send messages, create groups and control their Teams account.
