Sumo Logic notified customers of an incident and recommended customers rotate credentials in their platform.
In November 2014 BrowserStack, a cloud testing platform for cross-platform testing of different applications, was breached through an old prototype machine that had not been updated and was vulnerable to the shellshock exploit. The attacker created an IAM user and generated a keypair. The attacker accessed the email list and used AWS Simple Email Service to send emails to 5,000 users falsely stating BrowserStack was shutting down.
In July 2016, SaaS provider DataDog suffered a breach affecting its AWS customers. The breach stemmed from an attacker targeting production infrastructure servers and a database that stores user credentials. AWS users who attempted to use AWS credentials shared with Datadog also reported issues. DataDog immediately mitigated and notified users of the breach and ensured any precautions needed to be taken.
In 2022, LastPass suffered a series of breaches, eventually leading to customer password vaults being taken. This incident is notable because it is the first time we’ve seen evidence that a threat actor targeted a specific employee’s home network to capture privileged cloud credentials.
