Early 2019 we, at Char49, were challenged to research the most common API security issues. At that time API security was not exactly on the news, but APIs were becoming a fast-paced critical piece of modern applications architecture. We followed this technological change since its early days either due to our penetration testing services or responsible disclosure programs.

Our contribution was released later that year as part of the OWASP API Security Top 10 2019.

During our research on the Segways’ domain space, we found a subdomain pointing to a third-party domain “pending for deletion” by its owner. Using a domain monitoring and backorder service, as soon as the third-party domain became available we got control over Segway’s subdomain.
According to responsible disclosure best practices, we provided Segway a detailed security advisory. This article is published after the security issue has been (silently) fixed by Segway.
