LAPSUS$ Ransomware is a new and emerging ransomware group that has successfully attacked major conglomerate. Like most ransomware groups, LAPSUS$ also infiltrates organizations with a phishing attack. From there on, they exploit vulnerabilities like privilege escalation to get hold of administrative rights and blatantly display their abilities. LAPSUS$ Threat group has also breached Okta.
Now, some members of the group have been arrested by the City of London Police due to their data breaches in Nvidia, Microsoft, Ubisoft, Samsung, and Okta. While the LAPSUS$ gang announced that some members are taking a vacation, the City of London Police said that it had arrested seven people aged 16 to 21 “in connection with an investigation into a hacking group” and that all of them are under investigation.
