A well-known hacker group, Lapsus$, claims to have hacked Okta’s internal systems.
Okta is a company that offers authentication services, which are used by a large number of companies around the world. The company announced that it is checking the allegations of the Lapsus$ group about hacking and potential data theft.
Lapsus$ points out that he had access to Okta’s systems for two months, but that the focus of the hackers was only on Okta’s clients. The company has more than 15,000 users, including various government agencies, universities, but also standard companies. Okta’s clients include T-Mobile, Siemens, and other companies.
The Okta service has not been breached and remains fully operational. Please see our updated statement: https://t.co/xhnXt25Ugh

Official information from Okta is that the company did not find evidence of a hacker attack, but at the end of January this year, an attempt was made to compromise the account of the customer support engineer of one of the companies that cooperate with Okta. After that, the case was investigated and the warrant protected.
