E-Mail-Clients: Komfortabel, aber nicht immer sicher

Ein E-Mail-Programm ist eine praktische Sache. Es prüft das Postfach automatisch auf neue Nachrichten und ruft sie ab, die Ansicht ist auf das jeweilige Endgerät zugeschnitten – kurz: es vereinfacht die digitale Kommunikation. Da zumindest die grundsätzlichen Funktionen bei fast allen E-Mail-Clients sehr ähnlich sind, ist es für viele Nutzer eigentlich reine Geschmackssache, welches Programm sie auswählen. Doch diese Einstellung sollte man nochmal genauer prüfen, denn der Sicherheitsforscher Mike Kuketz hat nun eklatante Sicherheitslücken bei einigen der kostenlosen Apps für Android-Geräte gefunden.

So übertragen mindestens sechs beliebte E-Mail-Clients die eingegebenen Kennwörter an den jeweiligen App-Anbieter, und das zum Teil sogar unverschlüsselt. Konkret nennt Kuketz die Programme Blue Mail, Type App, my Mail, Email App for Any Mail, Mail.ru und E-Mail – Fast & Secure mail for Gmail Outlook & more. Bei Blue Mail hätte ein Blick in die AGB ausgereicht, um das festzustellen. Denn in der Datenschutzerklärung lässt sich die App vom Nutzer das Recht zum Sammeln der Anmeldedaten einräumen. Dass damit allerdings gemeint ist, dass das Kennwort unverschlüsselt übertragen wird, konnten wohl auch die wenigen Nutzer, die diese Erklärung tatsächlich gelesen haben, nicht erahnen.

Wer nun denkt, dass das Problem nur wenige Nutzer von eher unbekannten Apps betreffen dürfte, irrt. Ein Blick auf die Download-Zahlen im Play Store zeigt bei allen genannten Programmen zwischen einer und fünf Millionen Downloads, bei myMail und Mail.ru sogar mindestens 10 Millionen. Das Problem: Es muss sich dabei nicht um aktuelle User handeln. Es reicht, wenn der Client einmal eingerichtet und dabei das Kennwort übertragen wurde. Ob man ihn dann nutzt oder wieder löscht, ist egal, der Schaden wurde bereits angerichtet. Daher sollten alle, die eines der genannten E-Mail-Programme irgendwann einmal in Benutzung hatten, schnellstmöglich die Kennwörter für das betroffene Konto ändern und auf eine vertrauenswürdige App umsteigen.

Der Anbieter von Blue Mail hat übrigens die Erkenntnisse des Sicherheitsforschers in einer Pressemeldung dementiert. Das hält die App allerdings nicht davon ab, weiterhin Kennwörter zu übertragen. Das hat Kuketz nach der Veröffentlichung der Meldung erneut überprüft.

On 25 May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force. In order to ensure that TimePunch complies with the requirements, we will make adjustments with the next update to the version "TimePunch v3.2".

What changes with TimePunch 3.2?
In order to meet the requirements of the GDPR, we will make the following changes:

  • The new report "GDPR Information Sheet" provides a compact overview of which data about an employee is stored in TimePunch and which employees can access it.
  • The new role "Data Protection Coordinator/Privacy Officer" can be assigned to selected employees with the version 3.2. This data protection officer has the "right to inspect all documents" and is thus treated as an IT administrator (but does not have the right to change the data that has been viewed). The new role can thus monitor compliance with the deletion deadlines, delete data and call up the „GDPR information sheet" for all employees.
  • With update 3.2, the administrator or data protection officer is given the opportunity to delete data after a certain period of time. For the first time, it is now possible to delete employee data according to the new GDPR.

The most important rights of GDPR and the associated changes of TimePunch are summarized here.

Servo Cables for Long Distances

Servo cables in large factories sometimes have to bridge long distances between drives and control cabinets, without any dip in performance. This is only possible when the servo cable is designed with low capacitance and low attenuation in mind. The two new cables that Lapp will present at the SPS IPC Drives 2017 trade fair in Nuremberg (hall 2, stand 310) are perfect for this challenge.

ÖLFLEX® SERVO 7TCE: This servo cable can be used with servo drives from many leading manufacturers. It complies with UL TC-ER and Flexible Motor Supply, making it suitable for markets in both Europe and North America. This saves both storage space and part numbers. The low-capacitance design is the result of a core insulation made from XLPE. The outer sheath is made from a special thermoplastic elastomer and allows for installation lengths around 40 percent longer than standard solutions. The cable fulfils several requirements for resistance to oil, flames and UV radiation, and also meets the respective North American standards.

ÖLFLEX® SERVO 728 CY: The shielded encoder cable is suitable for most analogue and incremental rotary encoders in servo drives from many leading manufacturers. This cable also features low capacitance and allows large transmission distances thanks to its polypropylene core insulation. The shielded cable is oil resistant and is therefore suitable for many mechanical engineering applications with fixed installation. The Lapp developers put particular emphasis on a thin and light design. As a result, the ÖLFLEX® SERVO 728 CY is around 10 percent thinner than comparable cables.  This is a major advantage in cramped control cabinets.

CADENAS supports the well-known Stuttgart manufacturer for premium cars with Strategic Parts Management PARTsolutions

Daimler AG has been successfully using Strategic Parts Management PARTsolutions from the software manufacturer CADENAS since 2002. As an automobile pioneer and the largest supplier of premium cars as well as a globally positioned manufacturer of commercial vehicles, the company strives to promote the transfer of know-how in the development of its products – Keyword: knowledge-based design. This is achieved by giving the carmaker’s engineers access to the company’s own design guidelines for die casting tools within PARTsolutions when developing products.

Direct access to all relevant component information

Before the implementation of the design guidelines for die-casting tools in Strategic Parts Management, there were only links and references within the design to individual details and other documents. Now the design guidelines are available as a PDF document directly in PARTsolutions and links to the engineering data within Strategic Parts Management are possible. The design guidelines specify how the die-casting tools are to be designed and which parts to be used within the company group.

In addition, internal employees and engineers have direct access to 3D engineering data within the CADENAS solution, which can be inserted directly from the carmaker’s PDM system Smaragd into the respective designs in the CAD system NX.

Easier working conditions for external service providers

External service providers or suppliers also require access to on-going projects and internal standards. In the process, the respective engineering data must always be current. It must be clearly evident for external service providers, which standards are preferred in the designs. The supplier portal PARTcommunity Enterprise from CADENAS provides a direct connection for the customer to the Strategic Parts Management PARTsolutions and enables access to a great deal of parts information from the PDM system Smaragd and the ERP system SAP. External project participants therefore have access to all component information necessary for their designs via the online supplier portal. Any modifications in the construction lines are shown and are available to all participants. By simply enabling and disabling access for external service providers, the company can maintain control over the access to internal data.

The advantages of implementing the design guidelines for die-casting tools in PARTsolutions are obvious: The official guidelines are maintained in a central location and published automatically. Moreover, all the information about 3D engineering data as well as the respective 2D and 3D drawings are also available in one location.
