#915 Bitdefender finds eavesdropping vulnerability in public cloud
Security firm Bitdefender has found a vulnerability in public cloud infrastructures which it said allows a third party to eavesdrop on communications encrypted with transport layer security (TLS) protocol.

The vulnerability is leveraged by Bitdefender for its own research purposes, developing a technique called TeLeScope, which is only effective against virtualised environments that run on top of a hypervisor.

According to Bitdefender, such infrastructures are provided by industry giants Amazon, Google, Microsoft, and DigitalOcean, with the security vendor flagging banks, companies dealing with either intellectual property or personal information, and government institutions as the sectors likely to be affected by the security flaw.
