How I got access to Fastly account of

Hey Mates,
Hope you all are Good, This is my first write-up about how i gain access to a company's( fastly account. 
One Day I got email that is going to open source on Github.

Previously I've found a critical account takeover bug in via stored XSS and get rewarded(Write-up later), Since I have account in that's why I receive this mail.

Now Let's get started.
Email From
Now I was damn sure that there is something that the developer's missed while making project open source in Github, first i visited their Github project at and start searching manually for secret key's, private key's and Api key's, When searching for Api key I encountered with cache_buster.rb which is leaking the fastly Api key like this.

with(headers: { "Fastly-Key" => "k15177t3dctdg27138b03c737688c84g" })

Dont't waste your time this is not an exact fastly api key let's move on.

Now it's time for fastly api key, how to use this api key. Then I have search for fastly api in google and encountered with fastly docs at which shows how to get sensitive details. The documentation consists of different api endpoints /tokens, /customer/id/tokens and many more.
I simply created a working POC to List all tokens belonging to the authenticated user like this below and send the detailed report to them.

Request Example
GET /tokens HTTP/1.1
Fastly-Key: k15177t3dctdg27138b03c737688c84g
Accept: application/json

Response Example

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Content-Type: application/json

    "id": "5Yo3XXnrQpjc20u0ybrf2g",
    "user_id": "4y5K5trZocEAQYkesWlk7M",
    "services": [],
    "name": "my_token",
    "scope": "global",
    "created_at": "2016-06-22T03:19:48+00:00",
    "last_used_at": "2016-06-22T03:19:48+00:00",
    "expires_at": "2016-07-28T19:24:50+00:00",
    "ip": "",
    "user_agent": "Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_12_3) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/56.0.2924.87 Safari/537.36"
This will list all the token belongs to the authenticated users. There are many endpoints like this.
1.List all tokens belonging to a specific customer
2.Get a single token based on the access_token used in the request.

And Many more endpoints are listed at , I reported this issue to them they responded quickly and fix this within 6 days.

I hope you guys like this writeup.
