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

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).
