How can a reviewer get a quick overview of a pull request?
One possibility is to provide the pull request directly in a test environment.
For our open source project #bestofui5 on GitHub we provide the pull requests ad hoc directly as an #Azure Static Web App.
How? 👇 Image
In general, we use the possibilities of GitHub Actions, Azure Static Web Apps and Azure CLI here. Especially because these can be used free of charge.
The app is an #OpenUI5 app.…
The data comes from another GitHub repository.…
It does not make sense to provide this for all PRs.
So that the user can easily trigger the deployment, we have created a label for this.
When the label is added to a PR, an Azure Static Web App is created, a build is performed and this build is deployed.… Image

I was able to access thousands of companies’ passwords on #Azure and run code on their VMs.
This includes access to Microsoft’s own credentials… 💣

Here’s HOW I did it.
This is the story of #SynLapse. (1/11)
Looking at the Microsoft Azure bounty program, I noticed that “cross-tenant data leakage” in @azuresynapse is regarded as a high-impact scenario ❗️

The service queries data imported from customer sources (MySQL, CosmosDB, Amazon S3...)

How do you define a data source? (2/11)
1. Create a new “Linked Service”.
2. Select a platform, e.g. MySQL.
3. Choose an “integration runtime” (the machine that imports the data), either your own or the shared default one called “AutoResolveIntegrationRuntime”.

And then… you just type in your credentials 🔑 (3/11)

Where do #Azure attack paths come from? Attack paths that abuse (mis)configurations generally emerge from two types of control in Azure: explicit control and implicit control.

Let's see what that means and how you as a defender can eliminate the most dangerous paths:🧵
Explicit control means there is a one-to-one control relationship clearly defined on the controlled object. For example, Azure Users can be made explicit owners of Azure Service Principals: Image
David owns MyCoolAzureApp, meaning David can add a new credential to that Service Principal and authenticate as it, taking over the identity.

But this explicit configuration does not exist in isolation: there are paths INTO the user OUT of the SP: Image

I was able to access #Azure user credentials and run code on other customers’ machines.
The vulnerability is called #SynLapse.

It was a vulnerability in Azure Synapse Analytics (@Azure_Synapse) & Azure Data Factory, exploiting a major flaw in the tenant separation.

Through access to an internal API server I was able to:
- Obtain access to other customers’ Synapse workspaces
- Perform API operations like adding/deleting resources
- Run code on their service machines
- Most importantly: leak all credentials they stored in the service.

This blog is an advisory surrounding this issue, where the root attack vector was patched and assigned CVE-2022-29972.

>>> Technical details soon.
>>> Microsoft’s blog is in the comments.

☁ You will likely encounter pushback when moving to the cloud. Moving to something new may seem risky and unnecessary to the developers. This requires a cultural shift.

💎 Here are some tips on how to tackle this problem.

#cloud #googlecloud #azure #aws
1. Sync with cross-functional teams early and often. Train them so they understand the benefits of the cloud and are comfortable and knowledgeable using it.
2. Help teams understand the benefits, the project's processes, the desired goals and outcomes.

1/ #Azure #Hardening Tip #5: Legacy authentication to bypass MFA in Azure AD

"One of the most common methods used by attackers to gain access to Azure tenants is credential theft or password spraying with legacy authentication protocols. Legacy authentication protocols
2/ do not support MFA and (if enabled) can be used to gain access to hosted data and resources via Azure AD."

☝️Quote from the M-Trends 2022 Report.

A few weeks ago, I created a presentation titled "Attack target Azure", where these two points are also outlined as the most
3/ common methods (used by attackers) into Azure Tenants.

To better secure Azure Tenants, I recommend creating an evaluation of the applications that still use legacy authentication protocols. The use of these protocols should be prevented with Conditional Access Policies (CAP).

What is CI/CD?

Continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) are two approaches to software development that are designed to improve code quality and enable rapid delivery and deployment of code.

#DevOps #CICD #Cloud #Agile #Testing #Cloud #Linux #Security #ITjobs
A modern CI/CD pipeline in DevOps has build, test, and deploy stages-and aims to automate as many of the processes within these stages as possible.

1. Source Code: Changes to source code can trigger CI/CD tools to initiate the pipeline, or the CI/CD pipeline may be triggered
by automated scheduled work sessions or user-initiated workflows.
2. Build: The new code changes to applications are created and compiled to be prepared for the testing phase.

3. Testing: Testing automation via CI can save developers tremendous time and effort.

I found a vulnerability in #Azure allowing me to access Azure accounts of companies worth billions

We all know vulnerabilities exist. This isn't an injection, XSS, or RCE.

But the crazy thing about it?
It took 2 hours to discover. 🤯

Here's the story of #AutoWarp👇 (1/10)
Scrolling through the endless list of Azure services, I’m looking for a new target

So I click “Automation Accounts” not really knowing what it even means. I quickly realized that this is basically a service for running Python & PowerShell scripts. 🧐 (2/10)
I uploaded a reverse shell script and started typing every Windows command I could remember

The real fun started when I found this suspicious log on the machine:
"Creating asset retrieval web service. [assetRetrievalEndpoint=]" (3/10)

Here are all #Azure #Subscription types explained - some of which you may not hear of

➡ Free
For new accounts, $200 credits on registration, valid for the first 30 days and include free services. No cryptomining, no quota increase, limited support. After 30 days or after spending the credit, users need to upgrade the subscription.
The upgrade will allow you to continue using services for free for another 11 months (for example, 750h of Free B1s VM, 5GB LRS storage, 250GB SQL DB, ...) and a bunch of always free services. Other services will be billed to your cc.

There are two very interesting new cmdlets in this release:

Invoke-AzureVMUserDataCommand and Invoke-AzureVMUserDataAgent.

In this thread I'll offer my thoughts on how these can be used for extremely hard-to-detect #Azure c2:
This c2 technique is based on Azure IMDS:….

This service is accessible to every VM in Azure. As far as I know, there's no reason to ever disable this service for a VM, so it should always be accessible to every Azure VM.
IMDS's REST API is available to each VM at the non-routable, local IP of

Watching @NetAppINSIGHT keynote? Me too. Here are my quick thoughts. A 🧵

IMO, #NetApp was the traditional on-premises #Storage vendor that moved faster to the #Cloud. They created the #DataFabric vision a few years ago and are delivering value today.

With ONTAP services available on #AWS, #Azure and #GoogleCloud, I can compare what #NetApp is doing with #Storage to what #VMware is doing with virtual machines: providing existing customers an easier path to #Cloud migration.
