news - Microsoft Outlook Hackers Steal Crypto from Users’ Financial Accounts

Cybercriminals who had hacked into a Microsoft tech support account and had access to accounts of Outlook users used the email service to steal cryptocurrency from the users’ financial accounts.

Hackers had access not only to metadata, as Microsoft representatives had originally stated, but also to the contents of personal email boxes in Outlook, Hotmail and MSN. Since the attack, “multiple victims” have reported having cryptocurrencies stolen.

A lot of users said they had lost crypto via the Microsoft breach. One, going by the username “Keats852,” posted on Reddit earlier this month that he’d lost “25,000 in crypto” (currency not stated), also because hackers had accessed and deleted his emails.

Another Redditor said in the same thread that they had reported “something major going on” to Microsoft over the last two months, but had been “ignored.”

This is not a complete list of crypto owners who have been affected from the hacking. For example, the Reddit forum has a number of complaints from other users.
