A hacker group that has already stolen and released data from Nvidia and Samsung in the past, says that she has cited and distributed the source code of Bing, Bing Maps and Cortana of Microsoft. The group named Lapsus $, which is supposed to operate from South Africa, has set up this statement on Monday in its telegram channel.
The group published a screenshot showing the source code of Microsoft products and claims you have gained access to these products by chopping an Azure Devops server. The screenshot was later deleted with the message “will declare that later” by the group. The supposed source code, however, is still available. The Leak of Lapsus $, according to own information, is to contain 90% of the codes of Bing Maps and 45% of Bing and Cortana.
A Cyber Security Expert of Emsisoft said to Venture Beat that he did not disassemble the leak due to the fact that Microsoft does not disassemble the leak and because of the past victims of the group, the possibility of a theft of the source code for quite plausible. Both Nvidia and Samsung have confirmed the attacks by the group. “We are aware that the group stolen employee data and some information about NVIDIA products and started publishing them online,” said Nvidia on March 1st. According to the tech company, the data was the design of graphics cards, the source code for DLSS and an AI rendering system. According to experts (via wired), the motives of Lapsus $ are unclear.
