A vulnerability in Microsoft Exchange has become known. Due to a high damage potential if this vulnerability is exploited, access to the Exchange servers has been restricted to the KIT network. Therefore, you can currently send and receive e-mails in Outlook or OWA (https://owa.kit.edu) only locally in the KIT network or elsewhere only via a VPN connection.
Current information about this restriction can be found on our SCC message page.
