Security researcher says Azure Tags are security threat — but Microsoft disagrees

Azure Service Tags is vulnerable to a flaw that could let threat actors steal people’s sensitive data, some researchers have claimed – however Microsoft begs to differ.

Azure Service Tags is a feature in Microsoft Azure that helps simplify network security management by allowing users to define network access controls based on logical groups of IP addresses rather than individual IP addresses. These service tags represent a group of IP address prefixes from specific Azure services, which can be used in security rules for network security groups (NSGs), user-defined routes (UDRs), and Azure Firewall.
