Researchers, cyber security agency urge action by Microsoft cloud database users

-

Researchers who discovered a massive flaw in the main databases stored in Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform urged all users to change their digital access keys, not just the 3,300 it notified this week.

As first reported by Reuters, researchers at a cloud security company called Wiz discovered this month that they could have gained access to the primary digital keys for most users of the Azure Cosmos DB database system, allowing them to steal, change or delete millions of records.

Alerted by Wiz, Microsoft rapidly fixed the configuration mistake that would have made it easy for any Cosmos user to get into other customers’ databases, then notified some users on Thursday to change their keys.
