Security Flaw in Microsoft Azure Lets Hackers Control Azure Accounts

Researchers at Israel-based Check Point discovered that a user on the #Azure network could have potentially taken control over the entire server. The first security flaw was found in Azure Stack and was disclosed by Check Point itself on January 19th, 2019, while the second security flaw was found on the Azure App Service and was disclosed on June 27th, 2019. Full patches for both security flaws in Azure were issued to the public by the end of 2019. The security flaw could lead a hacker to get sensitive information of any business that has its machine running on Azure, the researchers said.
