Microsoft Dynamics is prone to a security-bypass vulnerability. An attacker can exploit this issue to bypass certain security restrictions and perform unauthorized actions.

A security feature bypass vulnerability exists in Dynamics On Premise. An attacker who exploited the vulnerability could send attachment types that are blocked by the email attachment system.
