How one man could have flooded your phone with Microsoft spam – Naked Security


Microsoft has a neat web page that helps you get Outlook set up on your phone.

You can either scan in a QR code off the web page, which takes you to the relevant download link…

…or put in your phone number and get an SMS with the link in it:

Just like Italian security researcher Luca Epifanio, our first thought was, “What if someone decides to put in someone else’s phone number and then spam them over and over and over again?”

That would be pretty darned bad – bad for the recipient, whose phone would be swamped with unwanted text messages, and bad for Microsoft, who would look like shabby and unreconstructed spammers.

(It might also end badly for the person who dishonestly triggered all the spam in the first place, if ever they were found by law enforcement or the regulators, but that is an issue for another day.)
