Introducing a new phishing technique for compromising Office 365 accounts

Introducing a new phishing technique for compromising Office 365 accounts

The ongoing global phishing campaings againts Microsoft 365 have used various phishing techniques. Currently attackers are utilising forged login sites and OAuth app consents.

In this blog, I’ll introduce a new phishing technique based on Azure AD device code authentication flow. I’ll also provide instructions on how to detect usage of compromised credentials and what to do to prevent phishing using the new technique.

Using Azure Cloud Shell from PowerShell

Using Azure Cloud Shell from PowerShell

Azure Cloud Shell is a browser-based shell for managing Azure resources using your favourite shell, Bash or PowerShell. Cloud Shell is typically used from Azure Portal. It provides an easy access to Azure CLI, Azure PowerShell and Azure AD PowerShell.

In this blog, I’ll introduce a new way to access Cloud Shell from PowerShell (requires AADInternals v0.4.3 or newer).

Bypassing conditional access by faking device compliance.

Bypassing conditional access by faking device compliance.

In my previous blog I demonstrated how to create a Persistent Refresh Token (PRT) by joining imaginary device to Azure AD.

In this blog, with AADInternals v0.4.2, I’ll show how to make those devices compliant, allowing bypassing compliance related conditional access (CA) policies.

Deep-dive to Azure AD MFA: Creating a custom authenticator app

Deep-dive to Azure AD MFA: Creating a custom authenticator app

Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) is nowadays a recommended method for providing extra protection for users. In most cases, it protects users from phishing attacks as the attackers can’t log in even they have user’s credentials.

In this blog, I’ll report my findings on how the Azure AD MFA works under-the-hood, and how I built a custom authenticator app for Android. I also introduce some methods how the rogue administrator can bypass MFA when using user’s compromised credentials.

Unnoticed sidekick: Getting access to cloud as an on-prem admin

Unnoticed sidekick: Getting access to cloud as an on-prem admin

This post is part 55 of Azure AD and Microsoft 365 kill chain blog series.

Although on-prem administrators doesn’t usually have admin rights to Azure AD, they can have access to crucial information, such as Azure AD Connect, ADFS, and Active Directory. Administrators of these services can easily get admin rights to Azure AD to manipulate and impersonate users.

In this blog, using AADInternals v0.4.0, I’ll show how to get Global Admin access and how to impersonate users as an on-prem administrator.

Keys of the kingdom: Playing God as Global Admin

Global Admin role is the most powerfull administrator role in Azure AD. It is (almost) equivalent to the local system rigths in traditional Windows environment: If you are a Global Admin, there is no security! As a Global Admin, there are no limits what you are allowed to do. For instance, one can easily access others’ data. But why bother, if you can as easily impersonate users?

In this blog, using AADInternals v0.4.0, I’ll show how (as an Global Administrator) to gather information of Azure subscriptions, gather users’ credentials, get system level access to Azure VMs, and how to impersonate users.

Wolf in sheep's clothing: Azure Active Directory reconnaissance as an insider

This post is part 35 of Azure AD and Microsoft 365 kill chain blog series.

Azure AD and Office 365 are cloud services and most information is hidden to the members (or guests) of the tenant. However, there are plenty of information publicly available to anyone.

In this blog, using AADInternals v0.4.0, I’ll show how to gather information of any Azure AD tenant as an insider.
