What security issues have you recently faced in your Exchange environment?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The biggest issue I’ve seen involving Exchange security was during a security assessment for a client. Basically the users didn’t have strong password requirements and I was able to crack one password which then allowed me to login, access their public folders which happened to contain sensitive corporate documents, glean the other user account names via the address book, and determine that a dozen or so more people had very easy to guess passwords.

Emails, documents, and more from the CEO on down were exposed to anyone on the Internet who took the time to do some basic poking and prodding. Certainly a case of “it’s little things that’ll get you”.
