Source code leak detection
GitHub has more than 40,000,000 users and at least 190,000,000 repositories, of which more than 28,000,000 are public. Github is used by most developers and development projects with source codes are done here accordingly. These projects may contain sensitive data about your company.
Companies use public and private repositories. These repositories may contain sensitive data such as credentials, API keys, secret keys or email addresses forgotten in the code. Threat actors are constantly looking for this type of data on GitHub, Jira, GitKraken, etc. This sensitive data can later be used by threat actors to gain access to your information systems or to perform social engineering attacks (phishing).
How do we detect these source code leaks?
We continuously monitor source code platforms such as GitHub or GitLab in real time and look for sensitive data such as, among others:
- E-mail addresses
- API keys
- secret keys
- Database connection strings
When such sensitive data is discovered, we sound an alarm. This will alert you to the disclosure of such data, allowing you to take necessary precautions.
Secure your IT infrastructure with proactive threat hunting.
