A recently discovered data leak
channel has been linked to an infamous deep and dark web threat-actor gang
named “LAPSUS$,” known for launching attacks against both major Korean and
- LAPSUS$: a widely recognized
threat-actor group that has targeted prominent companies like Korean
corporation S, as well as US companies such as Microsoft and Nvidia, with the
objective of data theft. The group has been known to publicly disclose the stolen
data through a Telegram channel.
The data leak channel, dubbed
"WiperLeak," was identified and
associated with LAPSUS$ after it was promoted on the group's Telegram channel
in September of last year. Presently, the channel is operational on the
widely-used messaging platform, Discord.
- Discord: a multi-purpose instant
messaging platform that offers voice, chat, and video call features, primarily
developed for facilitating communication among online gamers. However, it has
come to light that leaked documents, including those belonging to US security
agencies, are being circulated through this platform in recent times.
The Indonesian threat-actor gang
known as "VulzSec," which operates on the
messaging platform Telegram, has been observed engaging in cyberattacks that
specifically target various Indian government agencies.
The group has stated that their
attacks against Indian government agencies are a retaliatory response to the
indiscriminate cyberattacks launched by Indian threat-actors against
Indonesia’s own major government agencies. Their actions can be characterized
as hacktivism, aimed at making a political statement rather than personal gain.
