We talked to a lot of application security and cloud security owners this year. Here are our predictions based on those conversations.
For many years, traditional Software Composition Analysis (SCA) tools have been the go-to for dealing with vulnerabilities in open source packages.
The Oxeye research team has found a critical vulnerability in Spotify’s open source, CNCF-incubated project — Backstage. We reported this via Spotify’s bug bounty program and it was rapidly patched in version 1.5.1. It ranked this critical vulnerability with a CVSS score of 9.8.
The Oxeye research team has found a critical remote code execution vulnerability in the popular sandbox library VM2 - CVE-2022-36067
The Oxeye research team recently found several high severity insecure direct object reference (IDOR) vulnerabilities in Harbor – a CNCF-graduated, open source artifact registry.
Bridging the gap between security findings and developers has never been easier.
Oxeye’s security research team has found a security vulnerability in Golang-based applications. Under certain conditions, it lets a threat actor bypass validations based on HTTP request parameters due to the use of unsafe URL parsing.
An unraveling of OpenTelemetry’ internals through a hands-on experience.
A software bill of materials is a list of all building blocks comprising an application – both the open source and commercial libraries.
The shift to cloud-native development affects several important aspects related to application security.
Software Composition Analysis (SCA), identifies known vulnerabilities in 3rd party open source software components. It is not enough to assure that your apps are free from application layer vulnerabilities.
Why Legacy IAST Tools Will Fail Miserably When Testing Cloud-Native Web Applications.
Responsibility for App Security is no longer in the hands of one-owner, it’s a joint effort. App security is distributed to many groups and to different roles - Developers, AppSec and DevOps. So who’s incharge of security? And how to do it right.
Static application security testing tools (SAST), fail to provide the security measures required for cloud native apps. They lack context and are often limited to only one programming language, framework, or sets of libraries.
Dynamic Application Security Testing tools (DAST), and why they fail to successfully test cloud native apps for code vulnerabilities. DAST tools lack the visibility into the communication layer of both app, container and cloud.
Recently, Oxeye’s research team discovered several scenarios where sensitive data was leaked through tracing and telemetry collection within cloud-native applications.
Herein is an overview of AST and the challenges that DAST, SAST, IAST, and SCA tools face when assessing vulnerabilities in cloud native applications.
Which approach should application security teams take to protect against log4shell. Oxeye helps identify, mitigate and provides context to the Java logging package Log4j vulnerability also called LogJam CVE-2021-44228.
Given the intricacies of cloud native apps, it's critical for organizations to prioritize security during their build phase
OpenTelemetry is an open-source project by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF).
Cloud native application vulnerabilities are not singular events, but rather complex flows. Our blog brings a few real-life examples from Shopify.
Over 500 million applications will be deployed using cloud-native approaches by 2023, according to IDC.
