New vulnerability exposes Microsoft Azure customers to a cyberattack

August 08, 2019 / Anmol

Microsoft, on many occasions, has bragged about the security of their infrastructure including Microsoft Azure. However, the company has suffered security breaches in the past and according to a new report, Microsoft Azure users might be vulnerable to a cyberattack. As per a new data shared by Check Point Research, around a dozen vulnerabilities have been identified in a commonly used protocol that left millions of Microsoft cloud users open to a cyberattack. In a presentation earlier this week at the Black Hat security conference, the firm noted that flaws in the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) could be exploited to change the code allowing hackers to view, change, and delete data or create new accounts with full administrative rights. While the RDP was originally developed by Microsoft, several apps use the protocol on both Linux and Mac.
