Lapsus$, the hacker group that hacked Into Microsoft, Nvidia, and Samsung, has successfully hacked into T-Mobile and stolen the telecom giant's source code. T-mobile has confirmed that its servers were attacked, but insists that no customer or government information or other similarly sensitive information was accessed or stolen.

In confirming the attack, T-Mobile said:

A few weeks ago, our monitoring tools detected a bad actor using stolen credentials to access internal systems containing operating tool software. Our systems and processes worked as designed, the intrusion was quickly shut down, and the compromised credentials used expired. The system accessed does not contain customer or government information or other similarly sensitive information.

It's worth noting that Lapsus$hackers once again accessed the company's internal network by obtaining employee credentials, just like before. After obtaining the credentials of some T-Mobile employees, Lapsus$used the company's internal tools, such as T-Mobile's customer management system Atlas, to execute SIM card swapping attacks.

In late March, City of London police arrested seven teenagers in connection with Lapsus$, IT Home previously reported. But interestingly, only two of them have been charged. It was also reported at the time that a 16-year-old from Oxford had been arrested after being tipped off by a rival hacker.

The teenagers appeared at Highbury Corner magistrates' Court but have not spoken since, according to a city of London police statement. The pair were charged with three counts of unauthorized access to a computer to impair data reliability, one count of fraud by false representation and one count of unauthorized access to a computer to impede data access. The 16-year-old was also charged with one count of causing a computer to perform a function to protect unauthorized access to a program.
