Feb 07, 2024 Cybersecurity / Software Security
JetBrains is alerting customers of a critical security flaw in its TeamCity On-Premises continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) software that could be exploited by threat actors to take over susceptible instances. The vulnerability, tracked as  CVE-2024-23917 , carries a CVSS rating of 9.8 out of 10, indicative of its severity. "The vulnerability may enable an unauthenticated attacker with HTTP(S) access to a TeamCity server to bypass authentication checks and gain administrative control of that TeamCity server," the company  said . The issue impacts all TeamCity On-Premises versions from 2017.1 through 2023.11.2. It has been addressed in version 2023.11.3. An unnamed external security researcher has been credited with discovering and reporting the flaw on January 19, 2024. Users who are unable to update their servers to version 2023.11.3 can alternately download a security patch plugin to apply fixes for the flaw. "If your server is publicly acce

Critical JetBrains TeamCity Flaw Could Expose Source Code and Build Pipelines to Attackers

Sep 26, 2023 Vulnerability / Source Code
A critical security vulnerability in the JetBrains TeamCity continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) software could be exploited by unauthenticated attackers to achieve remote code execution on affected systems. The flaw, tracked as  CVE-2023-42793 , carries a CVSS score of 9.8 and has been addressed in  TeamCity version 2023.05.4  following responsible disclosure on September 6, 2023. "Attackers could leverage this access to steal source code, service secrets, and private keys, take control over attached build agents, and poison build artifacts," Sonar security researcher Stefan Schiller  said  in a report last week. Successful exploitation of the bug could also permit threat actors to access the build pipelines and inject arbitrary code, leading to an integrity breach and supply chain compromise. It's worth noting that the shortcoming only affects on-premise versions of the JetBrains software. The TeamCity Cloud version has already been updated wit

SaaS Compliance through the NIST Cybersecurity Framework

Feb 20, 2024Cybersecurity Framework / SaaS Security
The US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) cybersecurity framework is one of the world's most important guidelines for securing networks. It can be applied to any number of applications, including SaaS.  One of the challenges facing those tasked with securing SaaS applications is the different settings found in each application. It makes it difficult to develop a configuration policy that will apply to an HR app that manages employees, a marketing app that manages content, and an R&D app that manages software versions, all while aligning with NIST compliance standards.  However, there are several settings that can be applied to nearly every app in the SaaS stack. In this article, we'll explore some universal configurations, explain why they are important, and guide you in setting them in a way that improves your SaaS apps' security posture.  Start with Admins Role-based access control (RBAC) is a key to NIST adherence and should be applied to every SaaS a
