Actual attack this time: A new type of supply-chain attack with serious consequences is flourishing: New dependency confusion attacks take aim at Microsoft, Amazon, Slack, Lyft, and Zillow by Dan G (Mar 6, 2021) ...

The goal of these attacks is to execute unauthorized code inside a targetís internal software build system. The technique works by uploading malicious packages to public code repositories and giving them a name thatís identical to a package stored in the target developerís internal repository.

Developersí software management apps often favor external code libraries over internal ones, so they download and use the malicious package rather than the trusted one. Alex Birsan [...] dubbed the new type of supply chain attack dependency confusion or namespace confusion because it relies of software dependencies with misleading names.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
