An IAM User is an entity that you create in AWS. The IAM User represents the person or service that uses the IAM User to interact with AWS. The user {AwsUser} was found with permissive permissions that allows the user the ability to create access keys for a user or create/update console login credentials. An attacker may leverage this ability in order to create or update credentials for a user other than themselves, allowing them to then log in and act on behalf of that user.
  • Recommended Mitigation

    Review the user's policy and consider removing any of the following actions: iam:CreateLoginProfile, iam:UpdateLoginProfile, iam:CreateAccessKey
