Microsoft is investigating claims that an extortion-focused hacking group that has previously compromised massive companies such as Ubisoft and Nvidia has gained access to internal Microsoft systems, according to a statement from the company.
The hacking group, which goes by the self-designated name LAPSUS$, has successfully breached a wave of corporations recently. The group has so far not made any public demands against Microsoft. On Sunday, LAPSUS$ posted a screenshot of what appeared to be an internal Microsoft developer account to their Telegram channel. Shortly after posting the screenshot, an administrator of LAPSUS$’s Telegram channel deleted the image.
Earlier this month the group said on its Telegram channel that it was seeking employees inside companies who would be willing to work with them, including Microsoft.
