A security researcher has discovered a vulnerability tied to a Verizon application that would have allowed any user access to any Verizon email account -- and a fix has been rapidly pushed out.

As reported by ThreatPost on Monday, Verizon pushed a fix out for the flaw last week after security researcher Randy Westergren Jr. disclosed the vulnerability in the application program interface, or API, used by Verizon's My Fios mobile app. The flaw was severe enough that the telecommunications giant patched the problem within 48 hours. Fios is Verizon's bundled phone, Internet, and television service.
