Our threat intelligence this week focused on the recent the compromises of the ride-sharing service Uber and video game developer Rockstar Games. Through social engineering, the threat actor gained access to an Uber employee’s account and the company’s virtual private network, which enabled access to multiple critical IT services. The threat actor also accessed Uber’s HackerOne bug bounty reports that disclose vulnerabilities present on Uber’s infrastructure, which could be leveraged in further campaigns.

Days later, Rockstar Games suffered a network intrusion resulting in unauthorised access to its Slack server and Confluence wiki. The threat actor stole source code and early development footage for the popular game Grand Theft Auto 6, which has since been shared across social media platforms.
A threat actor under the moniker ‘teapotuberhacker’ has claimed responsibility for both incidents. Uber released a security update attributing the breach to an affiliate of the Lapsus$ data leak extortion group based on commonalities in techniques, targeted data, and focus on high-profile entities. The recent arrest of 17-year-old is suspected to be in relation to the incidents.

What is OVSS?

The Orpheus Vulnerability Severity Score (OVSS) helps companies understand the risk associated with particular vulnerabilities. Orpheus does this by adding additional context on the likely threat to and impact of CVEs, building upon the vulnerability information that is provided as part of the CVSS (Common Vulnerabilities Scoring System) score.
