In this clip. DoControl covers the anatomy of SaaS supply chain attacks, covering five phases: infiltration, implantation, propagation, activation, and exploitation. Attackers gain access to the software supply chain through various techniques such as phishing, social engineering, or exploiting vulnerabilities. Once inside, they implant malicious code and spread it to other systems or applications to maximize the impact. The attackers then activate the code and exploit vulnerabilities to achieve their objectives, which could include data theft or disrupting system functionality.
SaaS supply chain risks focus on machine identity access and associated credentials, particularly in shadow applications that are unsanctioned by the IT department. These shadow apps may contain vulnerabilities or backdoors that can be exploited for unauthorized access to sensitive data. Compromising credentials and privileges involved in application-to-application interconnectivity is a proven technique used by attackers. Third-party apps often request more privileges than necessary, introducing additional accessibility vectors.
The webinar also highlighted notable breaches from the past year, including Samsung, GitHub, and Toyota. These breaches involved the compromise of credentials and OAuth tokens, allowing attackers to access sensitive data and exploit further infrastructure.
