LAPSUS$ Hackers Claim to Have Breached Microsoft and Authentication Firm Okta

News and information from the Advent IM team.

Microsoft and authentication services provider Okta said they are investigating claims of a potential breach alleged by the LAPSUS$ extortionist gang.

The development, which was first reported by Vice and Reuters, comes after the cyber criminal group posted screenshots and source code of what it said were the companies’ internal projects and systems on its Telegram channel.

The leaked 37GB archive shows that the group may have accessed the repositories related to Microsoft’s Bing, Bing Maps, and Cortana, with the images highlighting Okta’s Atlassian suite and in-house Slack channels.

Bill Demirkapi, a security researcher at Zoom, noted that “LAPSUS$ appears to have gotten access to the Cloudflare tenant with the ability to reset employee passwords,” adding the company “failed to publicly acknowledge any breach for at least two months.”
