Over the weekend, it was reported that Lapsus$, the data extortion hacking group, had maliciously compromised many high-profile organizations. In the last few months, Lapsus$ has been breaking into a company’s systems to steal source code, customer lists, databases, and other valuable information, with the goal of extorting victims by threatening to leak online unless a ransom payment is made.
Lapsus$ has carried out numerous attacks, with confirmed attacks against Microsoft, Okta, NVIDIA, Samsung, and Mercado Libre. While information is sparse, we anticipate we will continue to learn of additional organizations impacted.
Organizations should remain on high alert, with a strong focus on Detection & Response.
