Uber System Breach Culprits Are Likely The Ones Behind Microsoft, Nvidia And Okta Hack

·1 min read
  • Uber Technologies, Inc (NYSE: UBER) has held the Lapsus$ group responsible for its recent hack. The breach had forced Uber to shut down some internal systems temporarily.

  • The culprits gained access after obtaining an external contractor's account credentials.

  • Uber's "public facing" systems, the databases for storing "sensitive" user data, and the software code underlying its app and services were intact, the Financial Times reported.

  • The alleged hacker claimed access to Uber's Amazon.com Inc (NASDAQ: AMZN) Amazon Web Services account.

  • The teenage hacker claimed to breach the company for fun and might leak source code "in a few months."

  • Lapsus$ was held responsible for the hacks of Microsoft Corp (NASDAQ: MSFT), Samsung Electronics Co, Ltd (OTC: SSNLF), Nvidia Corp (NASDAQ: NVDA), and Okta Inc (NASDAQ: OKTA).

  • Researchers identified seven individual accounts associated with Lapsus$, indicating more people involved in the group's operations.

  • The gang was also held responsible for the recent attack on game developer Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc (NASDAQ: TTWO) Rockstar Games involving the Grand Theft Auto series leak due to strong similarities in the attacks.

  • Price Action: UBER shares traded lower by 0.35% at $31.38 premarket on the last check Tuesday.
