The LAPSUS$ data extortion gang announced their return on Telegram after a week-long “vacation,” leaking what they claim is data from software services company Globant.

“We are officially back from a vacation,” the group wrote on their Telegram channel – which has nearly around 54,000 members as of writing – posting images of extracted data and credentials belonging to the company’s DevOps infrastructure.

The screenshots depict a folder listing for what appears to be different companies from across the world, including Arcserve, Banco Galicia, BNP Paribas Cardif, Citibanamex, DHL, Facebook, Stifel, among others.

Also shared is a torrent file purported to contain around 70GB of Globant’s source code as well as administrator passwords associated with the firm’s Atlassian suite, including Confluence and Jira, and the Crucible code review tool.

As malware research group VX-Underground points out, the passwords are not only easily guessable but they have also been reused multiple times, prompting LAPSUS$ to call out the “poor security practices in use” at the company. We have reached out to Globant for comment and we will update the story if we hear back.

The LAPSUS$ extortion group, since its emergence in December 2021, has been in the spotlight for its headline-grabbing hacks on Impresa, NVIDIA, Samsung, Vodafone, Ubisoft, Microsoft, and Okta.
