Given that two people—or maybe the same person—leaked the LockBit 3.0 compiler on Twitter, it appears that LockBit has had a breach.

A newly registered Twitter account by the name of “Ali Qushji” claims that their team broke into LockBits’ servers and discovered a compiler of the LockBit 3.0 ransomware encryptor, according to security researcher 3xp0rt.

VX-Underground reported that they were approached on September 10th by a person going by the handle “protonleaks,” who also supplied a copy of the builder, after security expert 3xp0rt tweeted about the hacked LockBit 3.0 builder.

The public face of the LockBit business, LockBitSupp, asserts that they were not hacked and that a frustrated developer instead exposed the secret ransomware compiler.
