The new critical vulnerability is dubbed as EFAIL, and the researchers say that there is no permanent fix available now.
The researchers suggest to disableHTML for email, and security experts agree that this is good practice, as connecting to remote servers and downloading unknown code from them poses a significant risk.
The researchers also note that there is no fix for the vulnerability just yet and it is better to not sign off your emails using PGP or S/MIME standards. According to the European researchers, "EFAIL abuses active content of HTML emails, for example externally loaded images or styles, to exfiltrate plaintext through requested URLs". The newly found vulnerability has the potential to reveal encrypted emails in plaintext, including emails sent in the past. Long term, comprehensively patching this particular vulnerability will require an update to the underlying email encryption standards. Copy and paste the encrypted text into separate programs to decrypt the text.
University researchers from Muenster and Bochum in Germany, and Leuven in Belgium, discovered the flaws in the encryption methods that can be used with popular e-mail applications such as Microsoft Outlook and Apple Mail.
"It's a lot of steps for sure, and one that honestly is more hypothetical than is it is risky", Dave Kennedy, the chief executive at security company TrustedSec, said. Some have criticized the researchers for teasing the vulnerability before publishing their full paper on it, while others have jumped straight to disabling PGP in their email clients.
The Electronic Frontier Foundation, on the other hand, is urging users to disable or uninstall PGP email plugins until the EFail threat is more widely understood. The attacks rely on the attacker to be in possession of the encrypted emails and can trick either the sender or the recipient to open an invisible snippet of the intercepted messages in a new email.
It recommended that users switch for the time being to secure messaging app Signal for sensitive communications. Created by computer scientist Phil Zimmerman in 1991, Symantec bought PGP in 2010 and is still the program's official developer.
"This is bad because the people who use PGP use it for a reason", he told the BBC.
Cluley also pointed out that it is not a new problem - the root problem of mail clients attempting to display corrupted S/MIME messages has been known about since 2000.
