The FBI, on March 29th, released a Private Industry Notification with vague details on a potential Phishing campaign targeting election officials in at least nine US states. The information in the advisory gives very broad information without really saying much. There is no information in the notification on which states were targeted and the phishing campaign sounds a lot like ones that are sent out to millions of people every day.

Lat week we reported on the quick change in Okta’s stance on a January security incident that turned out to be much larger and have the volatile hacking group Lapsus$ behind it. The original disclosure was that a single third-party contractor account had an unsuccessful attempt to compromise Okta’s systems. Okta states that they turned over information around the incident to Sitel, the third-party that provides customer support. Once this was done, Okta basically washed their hands of it and sat back waiting to hear what Sitel found.

Once again Google has been caught with their hands in the personal data collection cookie jar. It seems that their Messages and Phone Dialer Apps were sending information about your calls and messages without giving the user any chance to opt-out of this data collection. They also perform this data collection without any user notification at all.

Earlier today we covered the leak of Microsoft source code by the Lapsus$ group. The group leaked a portion of the data they claim to have stolen in the form of a 37GB dump. This dump has added to the source code they have stolen and released from companies like NVIDIA and Samsung. Lapsus$ has a pattern of compromising an organization, stealing data and then demanding money to not release the information, only to release the information anyway.
