Sensitive Microsoft Outlook Data Stolen By Hackers

The hackers have been able to take over the credentials of Microsoft Outlook support agents and use them in order to harvest as much data as possible about the victim users. What we know is that the criminal collective has been able to hijack dados da conta, but not the content of their emails or any file attachments. The information that can be retrieved using such credentials includes the following:

  • Email Addresses
  • Folder Names
  • Subject Lines
  • Names of email addresses that the users have interacted with

What’s more alarming about the security incident is that there is no information available about the exact mechanism the victims have used. As a precaution Microsoft has revoked all abused credentials and is actively notifying all users that might have been impacted. At the moment the total number of affected users is not known and/or revealed.
