"Our advice, which mirrors that of the researchers, is to immediately disable and/or uninstall tools that automatically decrypt PGP-encrypted email", the EFF said.
On Monday morning, the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) reported that Efail is able to expose HTML emails encrypted with PGP and S/MIMEencryption programs - even those that were sent years ago. "We devise working attacks for both OpenPGP and S/MIME encryption, and show that exfiltration channels exist for 23 of the 35 tested S/MIME email clients and 10 of the 28 tested OpenPGP email clients".
In a paper published Monday, the group outlined a proof-of-concept process for how attackers could exploit weaknesses in how email clients like Apple Mail, iOS Mail, and Mozilla Thunderbird manage HTML in messages. "Having used PGP since 1993, this sounds baaad".
Anyone who actively wants their email communication to be secure and private - and uses common email security plugins - should take notice.
Security researchers, backed up the EFF, have issued a warning over PGP and S/MIME encryption. That's because EFAIL can be stopped by using authenticated encryption; OpenPGP started to support authenticated encryption in 2001.

It recommended that users switch for the time being to secure messaging app Signal for sensitive communications. (S/MIME is more typically used to protect corporate emails, which means its use is up to the IT department, not individual workers.)

It advised users to disable the use of active content, such as HTML code and the loading of external content, and to secure their email servers against external access.
