Robinhood is a popular online brokerage platform that has recently seen significant growth in its user base. According to CEO Vlad Tenev, the company now has over 20 million users and a valuation of $3.4 billion. This growth has been driven in part by the company’s focus on creating a user-friendly and accessible platform for buying and selling stocks.

But with this rapid growth, the company has faced several challenges, particularly in terms of scaling its IT infrastructure. In order to continue to provide a seamless experience for its users, Robinhood has made the decision to outsource some of its IT operations to third-party providers.

Outsourcing IT operations can provide a number of benefits for a rapidly growing company like Robinhood. For one, it allows the company to focus on its core competencies, such as creating a user-friendly platform and building new features, rather than having to devote resources to managing IT infrastructure. Additionally, outsourcing IT operations can provide access to a wider range of expertise and capabilities, which can be particularly useful for a company that is looking to scale quickly.

One of the main benefits of outsourcing IT operations is that it enables a company to access a pool of highly skilled professionals with a wide range of expertise. These professionals can provide the company with the technical knowledge and expertise it needs to scale its operations, while also allowing the company to focus on its core competencies. Additionally, outsourcing IT operations can provide access to the latest technologies and best practices, which can help the company stay competitive.

Another benefit of outsourcing IT operations is that it can help to reduce costs. By outsourcing IT operations, a company can avoid the need to invest in expensive hardware and software, and can also avoid the need to pay for IT staff. This can help the company to keep its costs under control, while also enabling it to scale its operations quickly.

In conclusion, Robinhood’s CEO Vlad Tenev announced that the company now has over 20 million users and a valuation of $3.4 billion, however, with this rapid growth, the company has faced several challenges, particularly in terms of scaling its IT infrastructure. To overcome these challenges and to continue to provide a seamless experience for its users, Robinhood has made the decision to outsource some of its IT operations to third-party providers. Outsourcing IT operations can provide several benefits for a rapidly growing company like Robinhood such as access to a wide range of expertise and capabilities, cost reduction, access to latest technologies and best practices.

Critical GitLab flaw permits account takeover by attackers

Critical GitLab flaw permits account takeover by attackers

GitLab has patched a critical severity flaw that may have let remote attackers exploit hardcoded passwords to seize control of user accounts.

Both the Community Edition (CE) and Enterprise Edition of GitLab are impacted by the flaw, which was identified internally and is designated CVE-2022-1162 (EE).

During OmniAuth-based registration in GitLab CE/EE, static passwords were unintentionally set, which led to this vulnerability.

In a security advisory released on Thursday, the GitLab team stated that “a hardcoded password was set for accounts registered using an OmniAuth provider (e.g. OAuth, LDAP, SAML) in GitLab CE/EE versions 14.7 prior to 14.7.7, 14.8 prior to 14.8.5, and 14.9 prior to 14.9.2 allowing attackers to potentially take over accounts.”

In order to thwart such assaults, GitLab strongly advised users to update all GitLab installations right away to the most recent versions (14.9.2, 14.8.5, or 14.7.7).

We STRONGLY RECOMMEND UPGRADING TO THE LATEST VERSION AS SOON AS POSSIBLE FOR ALL INSTALLATIONS RUNNING A VERSION AFFECTED BY THE ISSUES DESCRIB

A code patch made two days ago reveals that GitLab removed the ‘lib/gitlab/password.rb’ file, which was used to give the ‘TEST DEFAULT’ constant a shoddy hardcoded password.

Some GitLab users had their passwords reset.
GitLab also stated that as part of the CVE-2022-1162 mitigation effort, it reset a select few GitLab.com users’ passwords.

Additionally, it did not discover any proof that any accounts had been compromised by hackers exploiting the hardcoded password security weakness.

As of 15:38 UTC, “We completed a reset of GitLab.com passwords for a chosen selection of users,” the GitLab staff stated.

Although there is no evidence to suggest that users’ or accounts’ security has been compromised, we are nonetheless taking precautions for our users’ safety.

A GitLab representative provided the information already included in the advisory with BleepingComputer when asked how many Gitlab.com users had their passwords reset, adding that they only did it for “a selected set of people.”

A programme to recognise affected user accounts
GitLab has developed a script that self-managed instance administrators can use to find user accounts that might be affected by CVE-2022-1162, despite the fact that the firm claims no user accounts have been compromised so far.

Administrators are urged to reset the users’ passwords after identifying any user accounts that might have been impacted.

GitLab claims that over 100,000 businesses utilise its DevOps platform, and it has over 30 million estimated registered users from 66 different nations.
