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

Microsoft has categorically denied being breached and stated that the data is likely an aggregation from various other sources. A spokesperson for the company emphasized that there is no evidence to suggest that customer data has been accessed or compromised.

Anonymous Sudan has previously targeted Microsoft with Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, disrupting services such as Outlook, SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business, and Azure. Microsoft tracked the group as Storm-1359 and identified multiple layer 7 DDoS attack techniques employed, including HTTP(S) floods, cache bypass tactics, and slowloris attacks.
