="The attacker social-engineers the victim into running this simple code that will install a new synchronization token -- one for a cloud account owned by the attacker."

it's still malware -- even if it is only used for a second

failure to authenticate, --again
="The attacker social-engineers the victim into running this simple code that will install a new synchronization token -- one for a cloud account owned by the attacker."

the law isn't going to protect you: you have to "CYA".    this means: learn how to authenticate in a digital world,--and start doing it.

you *cannot* authenticate using old ID data such as name, address, Date of Birth, Soc.Sec.Number, Mother's Maident Name,   etc: these data are stolen and used to impersonate you.

you need a means whereby you can authenticate and still retain exclusive control over your means to do that.   this is what public key encryption is all about.    learn to use it or continue to suffer.   it's up to you .

"Passing Tokens"
Similar to pass the hash, token passing is quite effective. Especially, when the medium is cloud services providing an extra layer of between law enforcement and attacker.

Improving Enterprise Cybersecurity With XDR
Enterprises are looking at eXtended Detection and Response technologies to improve their abilities to detect, and respond to, threats. While endpoint detection and response is not new to enterprise security, organizations have to improve network visibility, expand data collection and expand threat hunting capabilites if they want their XDR deployments to succeed. This issue of Tech Insights also includes: a market overview for XDR from Omdia, questions to ask before deploying XDR, and an XDR primer.
