google launch a event for developers Cloud BI Hackathon

data experiences on Looker and Looker Studio

so i see thats its running on Looker Service

looker owned by google And I have a strong background on this application from previous testing and reports

Bug I Found it was

Credentials For Looker Instance On Github By [Google Employee] Led To Critical Access Perform All Api Calls For [Cloud BI Hackathon ]

i was able to find client id & client secret for looker All that instance led to critical Access and Info and perform all api calls on Cloud BI Hackathon event

Now theres 3 parts for this find

Part 1 this app running on looker service of login and looker owned by google

Part 2 access and impact here for Google Cloud Bl Hackathon

Part 3 Leak here was by google employee work of company X That also owned by Google

so now we have leaked data
by company X Google employee

in looker that owned by google

affect on google Cloud BI Hackathon

Leaked Data:



normal POC it was for looker by usin this curl command

curl -d "client_id=ENTERHERE&client_secret=ENTERHERE"

For looker Leaks testing POC

Install gazer By This Command In Linux

sudo gem install gazer

Next Step

Check If This Data Valid

gzr user me --host --client_id XXXXXXXXX --client_secret XXXXXXXXXX
