Suspicious activity

Anomaly detection: user created/updated instances more than usually



User can create/update compute instances. If a user started executing multiple API calls which try to create/update instances unlike before it may indicate a presence of an unauthorized actor in the cloud environment since this kind of activity is seen mostly when attackers conduct reconnaissance actions in order to map the internal environment and spread inside the environment. It was detected that user {AzureUser} created more instances than before, which might be suspicious.
  • Recommended Mitigation

    It is recommended to review relevant ActivityLog event that issued this API call to determine if this is a legit activity.
