  1. Have a built-in dashboard or report summary for business justifications and false positives that users write to override a policy tip.

    Have a built-in dashboard or report summary for business justifications and false positives that users write to override a policy tip. Otherwise there is very little proper management and consolidated of business justifications / false positives which is needed to properly access the effectiveness of the policy tip and the actual compliance of users. Also, enable sending of incident report to user's manager or compliance officer so that relevant flags are sent to the relevant people [Ticket #:14230735]

  2. email security

    I am informed by a support ambassador that the recent email my tenants are receiving allows a scrip[t to run that will extract the username and password from outlook giving the malicious sender access to that account if the user clicks on the link in the email.
    if this is true, then this is a serious security breach and needs to be patched immediately!!!! my tenants are being hacked justifiably at their own doing by not recognizing the potential hack, but this should not be possible. period!!

  3. Improve ICD-9/10 detection for DLP

    Currently ICD-10 detection will trigger if an email contains the single word "system", with 85% certainty. An exact code and description match will also trigger with 85% certainty.

    An MS support tech explained that ICD-9 and ICD-10 detection was based on a dictionary lookup that includes the codes AND the code descriptions.This makes this detection mostly unusable, as many common words are detected with no way to distinguish from exact code matches.

    An improved system would primarily use a keyword lookup that matches the CODES only, with additional % certainty for nearby words matching the code DESCRIPTIONs.

    Until some kind…

  4. Automatic deletion of shared document links for deleted documents

    Hello,

    If a user deletes a document, the link for other users doesn't disapear.
    Would it be possible to implement a batch that analyzes the deletion of documents and automatically impacts the shared information for other users of the organisation?

    I tried with various situation, placing the document in the two different bin and it is necessary to delete the share configuration before the document.
    It is very impacting, if you consider that most of user don't think about deleting the share option before deleting a document, and as soon as the document is no more accessible, you have a…

  5. Please make OMEv2 a proper superset of the "old" OME including server-side decryption rule

    Please make sure that all the current capabilities of the "old" OME are present also in OMEv2 before decomissioning the old version.

    We have a case where a third-party application sends and receives mail that may contain sensitive customer data.

    We can enforce TLS between the application and Office 365, but not between Office 365 and recipient. The application needs to be able to process replies, thus they need to be in the clear when arriving at the application input.

    This is possible in the old OME but not OMEv2. Thus, we cannot move to OMEv2.

  6. Need multiple options for screen sharing for Office 365 Support

    Office 365 Support Help staff currently use Logmein as a tool for screen sharing with customers and for tech support. Our company has locked that tool from being used for security reasons. Can Microsoft provide another option? We tried to use Skype for Business but Support won't pass out a email address - so we cannot schedule a call and use that tool. Need some other options.

  9. Figure out why users get a Security Warning that outlook.office365.com has a bad certificate (issued to dsldevice.domain_notset.invalid).

    It's all in the title. Your service should not be trying to use such a certificate. Maybe check to see if a server has been taken over.

    This seems to happen about once ever 3 weeks or so.

  10. Use an email phishing engine that takes into account American vernacular as well as spelling and grammar.

    Foreign phishers, of which most seem to be, cannot master the idiosyncrasies of American vernacular and they even struggle with basic grammar and spelling. Since they are usually posing as legitimate American companies or professional individuals, create a machine learning engine that understands American vernacular then sanity check emails for violations of the learned rules of the vernacular. Microsoft likely already has a usable machine learning capaability already (bot Tay for example). Time to stop playing with that technology and start using it!

  14. Critical Bug at Customer Sites

    I've entered a bug issue (bug in new Office security feature), providing the details, and NO ONE has responded in any way. I was told that these issues are reviewed by the Office Dev Team.

    I need a response NOW. Customer sites are broken.

  16. GDPR: Email addresses disclosure message in SharePoint Online

    External user are able to see email addresses using generic link: https://<tenant>-my.sharepoint.com/_forms/default.aspx.

    The email address appears in the body of the warning screen provided by the above link. Besides the email address, in the warning screen also appears the source link which can be modified by changing the UserID parameter. In this way, a user can generate the full list of email addresses registered in the corresponding site collection.

    This is considered a security breach in the perspective of some industries and also GDPR regulations.

    When a message is tagged as potential spam, spoof, etc allow the viewer to respond if it is spam, spoof, etc while viewing the email and use responses to make the identification process smarter (positive responses could cause tagging criteria to be updated).

  19. Change Swedish translation of "Business Justification" to something else

    When a user chooses to override a DLP rule and needs to give a business justification the get prompted with in Swedish "Jag har en affärsjustering" ("I have a business justification" in English). I'm not even sure if "affärsjustering" is a word so it's not a very good translation. It's not an easy sentence to translate correctly but the words "berättigande, rättfärdigande, anledning or motivering" is better translation of "Justification" and a change of the translation should be considered.

  20. SCC Admin Quarantine email releases to all recipients when "release to other people" field is left blank

    When releasing emails from the Quarantine, if the "to other recipients" option is chosen and left blank (which the tool allows) email is released to all recipients. There is no notification nor documentation about this. If I am choosing "other people" there is a clear intention not to release to original recipients.
