Insights and lessons learned from the recent BIG-IP Application Delivery Services Vulnerability
Every few months, a bug will come along that puts the information security community into a flurry of activity. Working weekends and nights to understand new vulnerability information as it comes to light, applying new patches (sometimes multiple times, as the situation changes), while also keeping apprised of new information hasn’t been uncommon. Throughout these past couple of years, we’ve had bugs as notable as Log4J, ProxyLogon, and more recently, a string of F5 vulnerabilities.

Blast Radius: Mapping, Controlling, and Exploiting Dynamic Self-Registration Services
Vendors such as Datto, GeoVision, Synology and others leverage and depend on self-registered services for their products. These devices frequently leak critical data or have insecure design, unintentional or even intentional design decisions and application flaws. Through insecure network design and installation practices, they can be easily mapped, discovered and attacked by cyber criminals via insecure vendor, software and integrator practices.
Blast Radius: Misconfigured Kubernetes
Recognized as a leader in the container market, Kubernetes is an open source microservices cluster manager used by millions of companies worldwide. Bolstering its popularity is its considerable ability in managing container workloads, as it allows for the easy deployment of numerous servers with appropriate scaling as they grow.
Blast Radius: DNS Takeovers
Subdomain takeover remains a common vulnerability, and a destructive one at that. On one hand, there are types that practically don’t exist anymore, such as CNAME takeovers—while there are still plenty of hanging DNS records, PoC creation is nearly impossible due to restrictions put in place by major cloud providers (mainly AWS).
Blast Radius: Apache Airflow Vulnerabilities
Apache Airflow is an open-source workflow management platform that started at Airbnb in 2014 as a solution to manage complex workflows. It allows organizations to programmatically author, schedule and monitor their workflows over their web-based interfaces that are connected to internet databases and many other systems.
