Edison Mail has rolled again a software program replace that apparently let some customers of its iOS app see emails from strangers’ accounts.
Several Edison customers contacted The Verge to report seeing the glitch after they utilized the replace, which was meant to permit customers to sync information throughout gadgets. Reader Matthew Grzybowski mentioned after the replace he had greater than 100 unread messages from the UK-based e-mail account of a stranger. He didn’t need to enter any credentials to see the emails, Grzybowski added.
Others on Twitter reported related points:
The firm mentioned it was a bug, not a safety breach, and that the problem appeared restricted to customers of the iOS app.
“Ten hours ago a software update was rolled out to a small percentage of our user base. Some of these users who received the update are experiencing a flaw in the app impacting email accounts that was brought to our attention this morning,” the corporate mentioned in an e-mail to The Verge. “We have quickly rolled back the update. We are contacting the impacted Edison Mail users (limited to a subset of those users who have updated and opened the app in the last 10 hours) to notify them.”
We are urgently working to resolve this technical drawback in Edison Mail. Yesterday a software program replace rolled out to a small p.c of our customers. We have reverted that now and are reaching out to customers who’ve been impacted as quick as we will.
