OWA SSL access from public or potentially exposed workstations - security implications advice please!

Hi - assuming use SSL to access OWA, are there any security implications if a user uses 'any old pc' to view his Outlook via OWA - am thinking of malware running on the workstation which could be a public pc, or even a friends - especially as 'modern' malware goes to great lengths nowadays to keep its presence quiet!

Cheers

No way I know of.
Something would have to monitor the IIS logs and then alert on that basis. That may require some custom scripting, but it isn't anything I have ever had to do before so it would mean looking for something or writing something yourself.

As with many things, it is a calculated risk.

The main thing that you are at risk from is key loggers. Very little you can do about those other than encourage the users to frequently change their passwords. If you do not have a password policy, particularly expiring passwords then you should implement one. That will cause complaints, but it has to be done to limit any damage.

Most attackers though are after bank passwords, so as long as you take similar precautions to those that the banks take you shouldn't have too many things to worry about.

To some extent it depends on what your business is and whether you are likely to be a target for the data or not.

Thanks
