Microsoft to let Office 365 users report Teams phishing messages

Microsoft is working on updating Microsoft Defender for Office 365 to allow Microsoft Teams users to alert their organization’s security team of any dodgy messages they receive.

Microsoft Defender for Office 365 protects organizations from malicious threats from email messages, links, and collaboration tools.

“End users will be able to report suspicious Microsoft Teams messages as a security threat just like they do for emails – to help the organization to protect itself from attacks via Microsoft Teams,” Microsoft explains on the Microsoft 365 roadmap.

These new Defender for Office 365 capabilities build upon improvements announced in July 2021, allowing Microsoft Teams to automatically blocks phishing attempts.

Microsoft achieved this by extending Defender for Office 365 Safe Links protection to the Teams communication platform to help safeguard users from malicious URL-based phishing attacks.

Microsoft explained that the “Safe Links in Defender for Office 365 scans URLs at the time of click to ensure that users are protected with the latest intelligence from Microsoft Defender.”
