“Apple and Meta provided basic subscriber details, such as a customer’s address, phone number and IP address, in mid-2021 in response to the forged “emergency data requests.” Normally, such requests are only provided with a search warrant or subpoena signed by a judge, according to the people. However, the emergency requests don’t require a court order.[…] Apple and Meta both publish data on their compliance with emergency data requests. From July to December 2020, Apple received 1,162 emergency requests from 29 countries. According to its report, Apple provided data in response to 93% of those requests.

« L’étonnant profil du groupe cybercriminel LAPSUS$ »


“Bien qu’apparu récemment, LAPSUS$ était devenu l’un des gangs de cybercriminels les plus discutés et les plus redoutés, après avoir réussi à pirater de grandes entreprises comme Microsoft et NVIDIA, puis s’en être vanté en ligne. Le père du garçon a déclaré à la BBC : « Je n’avais jamais entendu parler de tout cela jusqu’à récemment. Il n’a jamais parlé de piratage, mais il est très bon en informatique et passe beaucoup de temps sur l’ordinateur. J’ai toujours pensé qu’il jouait à des jeux. » L’identité de celui qui se faisait appeler « White », ou «breachbase », avait été dévoilée – ou « doxxée » – sur un site Web de pirates informatiques, après une dispute apparente avec des partenaires commerciaux, qui avaient révélé son nom, son adresse et ses photos sur les réseaux sociaux. Apparu pour la première fois en décembre 2021 avec une demande de rançon faite au ministère brésilien de la Santé, LAPSUS$ avait depuis fait la une des journaux pour avoir publié des captures d’écran d’outils internes liés à un certain nombre de grandes entreprises, dont NVIDIA, Samsung et Vodafone, rappelle KrebsOnSecurity.”
