Critical Flaw in the Azure Cloud Platform Exposed Azure Cosmos DBs for Months

“The vulnerability has a trivial exploit that doesn’t require any previous access to the target environment, and impacts thousands of organizations, including numerous Fortune 500 companies,” the researchers, who named the vulnerability ChaosDB, say.
