Hacker group lapsus$ posted on its telegram channel on Wednesday that it has stolen 70gb of data from luxembourg-based software company Globant.

Screenshot of the files by Lapsus$ were posted on Twitter by security researcher Alvieri. Some of the high profile names included the likes of Facebook, DHL, BNPParibas and Abbott.

Apple also featured in the list of files on the screenshot. According to a report by the Verge, the details were similar to development material for Apple by Globant to track the health behaviours of users through the Apple Watch.

Globant on the other hand put out a statement on 30th, confirming the leak.

“According to our current analysis, the information that was accessed was limited to certain source code and project-related documentation for a very limited number of clients. To date, we have not found any evidence that other areas of our infrastructure systems or those of our clients were affected,” Globant said.

The notorious Lapsus$ gang was in the news a week ago after 7 suspected members, all in their teens, were taken under custody by the UK police.
