Outlook Plugin Encryption Bugs



  • Hello,

    There appears to be a couple bugs when encrypting an attachment using the Outlook plugin.

    • The first bug can be reproduced by checking the options “Rename the ext. to ??_” and “Use AES encryption”.

      When attaching the file, the plugin asks for a password and sends the file. The attachment, however, is not encrypted. It can be extracted without having to provide the password.

      This is true with all zip options.

    • The next one is more of an annoyance, but if you use the option “Compress & Encrypt (use PowerArchiver options)”, you are asked for the password 4 times (enter password, confirm password, enter password, confirm password).

      The file, however, is actually encrypted.

    I am using Windows 7 Ultimate RTM, PA 11.6.0.23, PAO 2.03.03.

    I’m open to the idea that I’m making a noob mistake, so feel free to correct me if so inclined…:D

    Thanks,
    Kevin
