Anonymous Sudan, which Microsoft tracks as Storm-1359, is offering the full database of Microsoft customer accounts for $50,000.
Microsoft has hit back at the hacktivists claiming to have infiltrated the tech giant’s servers and stolen the credentials of 30 million customer accounts. Reportedly, the Russian Killnet-affiliated hacktivist group, Anonymous Sudan, recently boasted about breaching Microsoft’s security and accessing millions of accounts belonging to its customers. The hacktivists posted details of the security breach on their Telegram channel, which read:
“We announce that we have successfully hacked Microsoft and have access to a large database containing more than 30 million Microsoft accounts, emails, and passwords … We will begin selling this database, so if you’re interested, contact us at our bot to negotiate.”
