Microsoft Azure Cosmos DB Incident and Cloud Data.

Microsoft Azure Cosmo DB, a fully managed NoSQL database for modern app development, was successfully breached. Security company Wiz was able to gain complete and unrestricted access to thousands of Azure customers, including many Fortune 500 companies, via a Jupyter Notebook feature.

The news of the attack was broken by Wiz security researchers, which sent Microsoft’s team into quick action. The team was able to disable the vulnerable feature within 48 hours.

Here are some interesting ways we can define a clear path forward for zero trust.
