Lapsus$ group members.

London police have arrested seven people suspected of involvement in a series of hacking attacks on Microsoft, Nvidia and Ubisoft.

I’m talking about members of the $ Lapsus group, who also broke into Samsung and Okta servers. One of the leaders of the team of cybercriminals is 16 years old from England – the boy had to collect $ 14 million over the years of his activity.

Seven people between the ages of 16 and 21 have been arrested in connection with an investigation with a hacker group. They were all released from custody on probation. Our investigation is still ongoing – representatives of the London police announced, Quote by BBC.

Microsoft is among the companies that have been attacked

The 16-year-old was due to be identified after another hacker released the teen’s data online. However, law enforcement officers did not want to confirm whether the young man was among those arrested, although it is highly likely.

In an interview with the BBC, the boy’s father said he was unaware of his autistic son’s activities.. – He never talked about hacking, but he is very good at computers and spends a lot of time dealing with them. I always thought he was playing says the man.

The statement of Microsoft, which fell victim to the $ Lapsus group, shows that the purpose of the criminals was not to extort ransom, but only to steal data and cause chaos.
