Vulnerability in Outlook mail: update your device

A vulnerability in Microsoft Outlook (e-mail program) has been discovered. A fix is now available (via a software update, also called a patch), but you may have to do something.

Own computer 

Are you using your own computer? Then we don't know if the update will be installed on your computer. We strongly recommend installing the update yourself. You do this as follows:

  • Start up an office application such as Word, Excel, Outlook (doesn't matter which one)
  • Click File in the upper left corner
  • At the bottom, click on "Account"
  • At the top right, you'll see "Office updates" turned on. Install any available updates.
