Box was recently notified of a SAML vulnerability identified by security researchers that threat actors could use to bypass primary authentication, potentially elevating permissions or impersonating privileged accounts.

 

Box's Security team has confirmed that our implementation of SAML was not vulnerable to this issue. We advise that customers review their own SAML implementations against the recommended US-CERT guidelines.

Upon the release of Box for Android 4.10, which is expected to be available the week of February 12th, Box will no longer continue support for Android OS KitKat (4.4 - 4.4.4). However, users should not see any current interruptions utilizing the Box for Android application on version 4.9 and will still be able to utilize it on KitKat. Updated 9/10/2018: this will no longer be true as of November 12th, 2018 when Box TLS support ends.

 

As Box ends support for Android OS KitKat, users will no longer receive new app updates through the Google Play Store. Our support team will not be able to troubleshoot/resolve issues for users on KitKat and older operating systems. 

 

For those who would like to receive newer client updates, please update your Android devices to Android OS Lollipop or later.
