Business information leak - JFROG


Through the credentials obtained in the code, access is obtained to external resources where there are binaries of which, if reverse engineering is applied, it is possible to find information burned in the code, such as access credentials to the Active directory.


Use the collected information for further attacks, such as AD information to access organizational information.


  • According to the classification of the information found, establish the necessary controls so that the information is accessible only to the indicated persons.

Code Examples

Compliant code

The access keys to sensitive resources are stored correctly encrypted

jfrog.accesskey   = ${access_key}
artifact.password = ENC(something-base64-encoded-but-encrypted)

Non compliant code

Access keys directly stored in the source code

jfrog.accesskey   = "AKIA0000000000000000"
artifact.password = "123"
