Critical Flaws Found in Alibaba Cloud’s PostgreSQL Databases

Two critical flaws were identified in Alibaba Cloud’s ApsaraDB RDS for PostgreSQL and AnalyticDB for PostgreSQL that could have allowed attackers to gain unauthorized access to customer databases.

These issues were reported in December 2022 and mitigated by April 12, 2023, though there is no evidence to suggest they were exploited.

The vulnerabilities would have enabled attackers to gain root access within the container, escape to the underlying Kubernetes node, and ultimately access the API server.

This issue is similar to ones discovered in Azure Database for PostgreSQL Flexible Server and IBM Cloud Databases for PostgreSQL last year, and highlights the importance of enforcing multi-factor authentication to protect cloud services.
