tl;dr I found a severe issue in the Slack's SAML implementation that allowed me to bypass the authentication. This has now been solved by Slack.
IMHO the rule #1 of any bug hunter (note I do not consider myself one of them since I do this really sporadically) is to have a good RSS feed list. In the course of the last years I built a pretty decent one and I try to follow other security experts trying to "steal" some useful tricks. There are many experts in different fields of the security panorama and too many to quote them here (maybe another post). But one of the leading expert (that I follow) on SAML is by far Ioannis Kakavas. Indeed he was able in the last years to find serious vulnerability in the SAML implementation of Microsoft and Github. Usually I am more an "OAuth guy" but since both, SAML and OAuth, are nothing else that grandchildren of Kerberos learning SAML has been in my todo list for long time. The Github incident gave me the final…
tl;dr in this blog post I am going to talk about some bug bounty left over with a little rant.
Here you can find bug bounty left over part I and II

In one of my previous post I was saying that:
"The rule #1 of any bug hunter... is to have a good RSS feed list." Well well well allow me in this post to state rule #2 (IMHO)
"The rule #2 of any bug hunter is to DO NOT be to fussy with 'food' specifically with left over"
aka even if the most experience bug hunter was there (and it definitely was my case here, given the fact we are talking about no one less than filedescriptor) do not assume that all the vulnerabilities have been found! So if you want some examples here we go. Part I - GoogleI have the privilege to receive from time to time Google Vulnerability Research Grant. One of the last I received had many target options to choose from, but one in particular caught my attention, namely Google Issue T…
The first time I heard about this problem is about couple of weeks ago via this Matthew's tweet:
As a curiosity, the NSA didn’t just standardize Dual EC, they also standardized a second sketchy …
