As this security flaw still exists and puts Azure environments at risk, we believe it’s important to continuously verify whether your environment is vulnerable. To do that we integrated Azure password harvesting capabilities into the Infection Monkey.
We are pleased to announce a new version of our Infection Monkey open source attack simulation tool with several significant enhancements. We first introduced the Infection Monkey in 2016 and have continuously developed and supported it. Part of what we did came from feedback we received from our community so thanks everyone for contributing!
