Identifies when an admission controller is executed in GCP Kubernetes.
A Kubernetes Admission controller intercepts, and possibly modifies, requests to the Kubernetes API server.
The behavior of this admission controller is determined by an admission webhook (MutatingAdmissionWebhook or ValidatingAdmissionWebhook) that the user deploys in the cluster.
An adversary can use such webhooks as the MutatingAdmissionWebhook for obtaining persistence in the cluster.
For example, attackers can intercept and modify the pod creation operations in the cluster and add their malicious container to every created pod. An adversary can use the webhook ValidatingAdmissionWebhook, which could be used to obtain access credentials.
An adversary could use the webhook to intercept the requests to the API server, record secrets, and other sensitive information.
Identifies when a Google Cloud Kubernetes CronJob runs in Azure Cloud. Kubernetes Job is a controller that creates one or more pods and ensures that a specified number of them successfully terminate.
Kubernetes Job can be used to run containers that perform finite tasks for batch jobs. Kubernetes CronJob is used to schedule Jobs.
An Adversary may use Kubernetes CronJob for scheduling execution of malicious code that would run as a container in the cluster.
