Microsoft Azure Arc Jumpstart Information Disclosure

Medium

Synopsis

An information disclosure issue exists in the Azure Arc Jumpstart environment. The script used to provision clients in this environment logs service principal credentials, database credentials, and other potentially sensitive information in plaintext to a log file that is readable by any user on the system.

These logs can be found in the following directory in a default deployment: "C:\Packages\Plugins\Microsoft.Compute.CustomScriptExtension\1.10.12\Status\"

This allows a malicious actor to view potentially sensitive information if they were to gain access to one of these clients in any capacity. They could also potentially elevate privileges to those of the disclosed accounts. Additionally, further lateral compromise of a customer's infrastructure is possible if the disclosed service principals or other credentials are used elsewhere in the customer's environment.

Solution

Users with existing deployments should rotate service principal credentials used in their Arc Jumpstart environment. New deployments require no action from end users.

Microsoft has updated their documentation to warn against re-using the service principals or other accounts created within this environment elsewhere in a customer's Azure environment.
