Authentication service provider and Okta subsidiary Auth0 has disclosed what it calls a “Security event” involving some of its code repositories.
“In late August, a third-party individual notified Okta that they possessed a copy of certain Auth0 code repositories dating from October 2020 and earlier,” Auth0 revealed.
“Both investigations, recently concluded, confirmed that there was no evidence of unauthorized access to our environments, or those of our customers, nor any evidence of any data exfiltration or persistent access,” Auth0 added.
For the time being, Auth0 says that it took “Precautionary steps” to ensure that information bundled with the code could not be used in the future to hack into company and customer systems.
While Auth0 said the blog post would be “Sharing context and details” regarding these findings, it failed to provide any information regarding how the data was exfiltrated from its systems.
An Auth0 spokesperson was not immediately available for comment when contacted by BleepingComputer earlier today.
