“In late January 2022, Okta detected an attempt to compromise the account of a third-party customer support engineer working for one of our sub processors. The matter was investigated and contained by the sub processor.” Todd Mckinnon, Executive Officer at Okta, said in a tweet “We believe the screenshots shared online are connected to this January event. Based on our investigation to date, there is no evidence of ongoing malicious activity beyond the activity detected in January”
Lapsus$ also said amongst these posts “They did not illegally access or cause damage to any, one server or database belonging to Okta, rather, they were targeting the Okta customers.
