Lapsus$ claims to have access to the developer account of a Microsoft employee. Last month, the ransomware group robbed Nvidia of personal data.

On Sunday, Lapsus$ posted a screenshot of a Microsoft developer account on Telegram, Motherboard reported. The screenshot implies that the ransomware group has access to Microsoft trade secrets, including Bing and Cortana source code.

The post has since disappeared. “Deleted for now, will repost later”, the ransomware group wrote shortly after. Microsoft is aware of the claim. The organization confirmed an ongoing investigation.

Two weeks back, Lapsus$ published an advertisement targeting employees of major technology companies, including Microsoft. Lapsus$ was looking for employees willing to leak VPN, Citrix or other network access.
