Okta investigating claims of customer data breach from Lapsus$ group

Okta, a leading provider of authentication services and Identity and access management solutions says it is investigating claims of data breach.

On Tuesday, data extortion group Lapsus$ posted screenshots in their Telegram channel of what it alleges to be Okta’s customer data.

On Monday, Lapsus$ leaked what it claims to be 37 GB of stolen source code for Bing, Cortana, and other Microsoft projects as Microsoft confirmed they were investigating.

The Lapsus$ hacking group claims to have leaked the source code for Bing, Cortana, and other projects stolen from Microsoft’s internal Azure DevOps server.

Lapsus$ has previously leaked gigabytes of proprietary data purportedly stolen from leading companies such as Samsung, NVIDIA, and Mercado Libre confirmed this month they had suffered a breach.

Data extortion groups like Lapsus$ breach victims, but as opposed to encrypting confidential files like a ransomware operator would, these actors steal and hold on to victims’ proprietary data, and publish it should their extortion demands not be met.
