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

While services were temporarily disrupted during these attacks, Microsoft maintains that customer data remains secure. Anonymous Sudan describes itself as hacktivists but is believed to have pro-Russia affiliations. The group has targeted government entities in France, Denmark, and Sweden, indicating political motivations.

Critics have questioned the low asking price for the alleged database, suggesting it may be suspiciously low and driven by quick financial gain. Some speculate that Anonymous Sudan may be based in the United Arab Emirates, despite its Sudanese origins. However, there are arguments that the group is a Russian information operation leveraging Islamic credentials to advocate for closer Russia-Islamic world cooperation.
