In recent weeks, the hacking group Lapsus$ has made a name for itself for accessing company data NVIDIA, Samsung, Ubisoft, octaand even Microsoftand acc a new Bloomberg reporta teenager based in England could be the person running the operation.
“Four researchers working on behalf of companies under attack to investigate the Lapsus$ hacking group said they believe the teenager is the mastermind.” Bloomberg called. However, the teenager, who appears to be using the online aliases “White” and “breachbase,” has not been charged by law enforcement, and researchers “were unable to conclusively link him to every hack Lapsus$ claimed.” Bloomberg called.
The teenager appears to live about five miles outside of Oxford University and Bloomberg says she was able to talk to her mother for 10 minutes on a “doorbell intercom” in the house. The teen’s mother told the publication she was unaware of any allegations against him. “She declined to speak about her son in any way or make him available for an interview, saying the issue was a law enforcement matter and she was contacting the police.” Bloomberg called.
However, Lapsus$ does not only consist of the teenager living in England. Bloomberg reports that an alleged member is another teenager in Brazil and that seven unique accounts have been linked to the group. One of the members appears to be such a skilled hacker that researchers thought the work was automated, said a person who helped research the group Bloomberg.
Accordingly Cybersecurity expert Brian Krebsa core member of Lapsus$, who may have used the aliases “Oklaqq” and “WhiteDoxbin,” also bought Doxbin, a website that allows people to post or search for the personal information of others dox. This WhiteDoxbin person apparently wasn’t the best administrator and had to sell the site back to its previous owner, but leaked “the entire Doxbin record”, resulting in the Doxbin community doxing WhiteDoxbin“including videos allegedly shot outside his home in the UK at night,” Krebs reported.
Krebs also reports that this person may have been behind schedule the EA data breach that happened last year. What can connect the person between Bloomberg and cancer is the name “breachbase”.
Back in May 2021, WhiteDoxbin’s Telegram ID was used to create an account with a Telegram-based service for launching DDoS (Distributed Denial-of-Service) attacks, where they identified themselves as “@injury basis.” News of EA’s hack last year was first posted to the cybercriminal underground by user Breachbase in the English-language hacking community raid forumsrecently confiscated by the FBI.
