Microsoft Denies Data Breach as Anonymous Sudan Claims to Sell Alleged Microsoft User Data

Cybercrime group Anonymous Sudan recently claimed to have successfully hacked Microsoft and stolen a “large database” containing over 30 million Microsoft accounts, emails, and passwords. The group announced its intentions to sell the database for $50,000, stating that interested buyers can contact them through a Telegram bot to complete the transaction.

To support their claims, Anonymous Sudan shared a data sample that included 100 credential pairs. However, the origin of these credentials cannot be verified, leaving open the possibility that they may have been obtained from a different data breach or a third-party source unrelated to Microsoft.
