Two Teens Charged And Accused Of Being Members Of Lapsus$

You might remember that London police arrested seven teens last week in relation to being members of the infamous Lapsus$ gang. Now two teens have been charged according to this:

While the above Tweet doesn’t name the teens, nor mention Lapsus$, this BBC report has this to say:

A 16- and 17-year-old appeared at Highbury Corner youth court, in London, on Friday charged with a number of cyber-offences.

The two boys have been released on bail, subject to certain conditions.

They were arrested as part of an international police investigation into the Lapsus$ gang, which has hacked major tech firms including Microsoft.

Both teenagers are charged with three counts of unauthorised access with intent to impair operation of, or hinder, access to a computer, and two counts of fraud by false representation.

The 16-year-old, has also been charged with one count of causing a computer to perform a function to secure unauthorised access to a programme.

I think it is safe to say that there may be more arrests on the way. And given that the scope of their crimes have been international, I’m also pretty sure that other law enforcement will be very interested in these teens.

Stay tuned for more on this as there will be more developments on this story.
