Breakthrough of the United Nations

It appears that the U.N uses misconfigured apps such as Trello, Jira and Google Docs. Security researcher Kushagra Pathak found the breach about a month ago and brought the U.N. informed in a chat with The interception Pathak says that he has found the violation by searching Google, making Trello pages public.

Some Trello cards contain links to Jira pages, an app for tracking problems, and Google Docs, some of which had readable passwords. Mr. Pathak is a bit of a specialist when it comes to public Trello plates, so it's not uncommon for him to find something like that.

After the U.N. the exposed information had been removed, said spokesman Florencia Soto Nino-Martinez in an e-mail The interception:

Some of the boards mentioned have communication material that is not sensitive, while some have outdated information. However, we look at all the signs in the list to ensure that no passwords or credentials are shared via this medium. We take security very seriously and have contacted all employees to point out the risks of using an external platform to share content and to take the necessary precautions to ensure that no sensitive content is publicly available .
