Researchers cyber security of Check Point revealed details of two potentially dangerous errors in services Azure, which could enable hackers to target and exploit many businesses running web and mobile applications on Azure. The Azure App allows users to create website and mobile applications for any platform or device and integrate them easily with solutions SaaS, in-house applications to automate business procedures.
According to a report by researchers at The Hacker News, the first mistake security (CVE-2019-1234) is one spoofing issue that affected Azure Stack (a solution software hybrid cloud computing by Microsoft).
This error would allow a hacker to remotely unauthorize access in screenshots and sensitive information any virtual machine running Azure. According to researchers, the hacker can exploit this error through Microsoft Azure Stack Portal, an interface where users can access the in cloud created using Azure Stack.
By utilizing an insured API, researchers have found a way to gain access to the name and ID card of the virtual machine, in the hardware information (kernels, full memory) of the target machines and then use it with another HTTP request without authentication to steal screenshots.
As for the second error (CVE-2019-1372), this is related to the distance code execution which affected the Azure App service on Azure Stack, which would enable a hacker to gain full access control of the entire Azure server and consequently take control of one's business code company.
A hacker can exploit both of these errors by creating one for free account in Azure Cloud and Run malicious functions on it or sending HTTP requests without authentication to an Azure Stack user portal.
Check Point researcher Ronen Shustin, who discovered the bugs, reported them to Microsoft, preventing hackers from causing serious harm. damage and a state of chaos. After correcting both errors, the company awarded Shustin $ 40.000 program Azure bug bounty.
