Brazen SolarWinds Hackers Offer Alleged Windows 10 Source Code For $600,000

The SolarWinds breach has been pervasive, and the world is still reeling from the effects. We have heard that hackers accessed data from Microsoft, U.S Government agencies, and other high-profile companies. Now we're learning about the full scope of the data that was allegedly obtained. A website recently appeared alleging that some of this data is available for sale, including partial Microsoft Windows source code for a whopping $600,000. That is just a bit more expensive than a real Windows license.

The hackers, who seem to be operating under the moniker of “SolarLeaks,” describe their escapades as a “recent adventure.” Now, they are selling the spoils of this adventure (as if it is a DND campaign), for a total bundle deal of $1,000,000. What is available in standalone format includes the following:
  • Microsoft Windows Partial Source Code - $600,000
  • Cisco Multiple Products Source Code/Internal Bug Tracing - $500,000
  • SolarWinds Products Source Code - $250,000
  • FireEye Private Redteam Tools, Source Code, Binaries and Docs - $50,000
The hackers also claim that there will be more to come in the next few weeks. We can only assume that it could be government files purportedly taken from the U.S Court system. There could also be other companies that we do not know were breached yet either.

Furthermore, the hackers claim that they can provide proof of their offerings, so we have reached out and are waiting on a response at this time. In the meantime, keep an eye on HotHardware as this is a developing situation.
