Microsoft Outlook email breach might have resulted in cryptocurrency theft

Microsoft Outlook email breach might have led to hackers stealing victims’ cryptocurrency, Motherboard writes. Originally, Microsoft claimed that hackers were only able to access Outlook users’ email metadata and customer information like subject lines and names of people with whom victims were in contact. However, Motherboard writes the hack might have been used to steal people’s cryptocurrency.

“The hackers also had access to my inbox allowing them to password reset my account and withdrawal [sic] my Bitcoin,” said Microsoft user Jevon Ritmeester, who reportedly lost approximately 1 bitcoin.
