You need to download this Microsoft Outlook update, or your emails could be at-risk

The changelog for the new Outlook mobile update says: “Outlook is making it easier to identify emails from senders outside your organisation to protect against spam & phishing threats. If admin configured, there will be a new external label on emails and the sender’s email address can be viewed by tapping the external label at the top of the email.”

The risk that unsolicited messages can carry was highlighted in a zero-day vulnerability that Microsoft recently pushed out.

Last week’s Patch Tuesday release fixed a terrifying vulnerability that can lead to hard drives being marked as corrupt.

The Windows 10 flaw is believed to have been active since 2018, with attackers just needing to utilise a simple one-line command to corrupt NTFS hard drives.

As previously reported, prior to this flaw being fixed bad actors, as well as pranksters, were trying to take advantage of this flaw by circulating specially crafted files.

These files, which included bogus Windows Shortcuts, were capable of executing the one line command needed to corrupt hard drives.
