Microsoft (finally!) announced in April 2019 the support for 8-256 character passwords in Azure AD/Office 365. This limit does not apply to users whose passwords are synced from the on-prem Active Directory (or for federated users). In this blog, I tell how to set insanely long passwords (64K+) also for cloud-only users!
On November 2018 Azure AD MFA was down over 12 hours preventing users from logging in to Office 365. Same happened in October 2019 in US data centers. As MFA is usually mandatory for administrators by company policy, they couldn’t log in either. In this blog, I’ll show how to create a backdoor to Azure AD so you can log in and bypass MFA.
For the last couple months I’ve used most of my free time on studying and hacking Azure AD admin APIs. As a result, I’m finally publishing the first (beta) version of the AADInternals PowerShell module.
By default, any user of Office 365 or Azure AD tenant can read the content of Azure AD using PowerShell and Graph API Explorer. This is a serious security issue because users have undetectable access to other users’ personal data, which violates for instance GDPR. In this blog, I’ll tell how to prevent the access.
Microsoft Teams has been available for free since July 2018. In this blog, I’ll deep dive to its technical details.
I’ve recently noticed that many organisations moving to Office 365 are struggling with their current on-premises non-routable UPNs. In this blog, I’ll show how to use Office 365 without altering on-premises UPNs.
In June 2018 the existence of secret Office 365 forensics tool was confirmed. The tool refers to Microsoft’s undocumented Exchange Online Activities API. The API provides access to a granular mail activity events for up to six months old data!
To provide administrators with easy access to the API, I created a PowerShell module (EXOMailActivity). In this blog, I’ll show you how to use the module to get access to mail activity data.
Office 365 groups is a great way to promote collaboration between people inside and outside organisations. By default, users are able to create groups freely, making their use easy. However, in many organisations, this has led to chaos.
In this blog, I show how you can get back the control of Office 365 groups, Teams and Planner.
Have you ever faced a situation, where a user takes a longer than 30-day leave, and you would like to save money spent on Office 365 licenses but still preserve user’s mailbox?
In this blog, I tell you how!
It still surprises me how few know that Office 365 includes a full-fledged email encryption solution, Office Message Encryption (OME). A “new OME”, built on top of Azure Information Protection, has been available for some time now. In this blog, I’ll tell you how to setup and customise the new OME.
