New Research From Accurics Reveals Emergence Of New Cloud Watering Hole Attacks

Kubernetes users who try to implement role-based access controls (RBAC) often fail to define roles at the proper granularity. This increases credential reuse and the chance of misuse – in fact, 35% of the organizations evaluated struggle with this problem, according to the latest report from Accurics. In Helm charts, 48% of problems came about through insecure defaults. …
