iOS bug on Edison Mail app exposes emails

 A bug introduced in an iOS software update on the Edison Mail app allowed emails to be viewed by strangers. Edison Mail, a popular third-party email app, has warned thousands of iOS users that their emails may have been compromised after a security flaw exposed emails to complete strangers. Edison Mail, owned by Edison Software Inc., is in the top 100 productivity apps on the Apple app store, and touts itself as “lightning fast and secure mail.” According to Edison Mail, a recent iOS update caused a temporary bug in the app. This flaw potentially allowed the unauthorized email account access of 6,480 iOS Edison Mail users to other users. “On Friday, May 15th, 2020, a software update enabled users to manage accounts across their Apple devices,” said Edison in a statement on Sunday. “The issue only impacted a fraction of our iOS app users (and no Android or Mac users were affected). This temporary issue was a bug, and not related to any external security issues.”
