San Francisco: Microsoft has discovered that over 44 million users of it's Azure and Microsoft Services Accounts (MSA) are using leaked credentials to log into their accounts. The Microsoft identity threat research team regularly checks billions of credentials obtained from different breaches to look for compromised credentials in the Microsoft systems. In 2019, the threat research team checked over three billion credentials and found a match for over 44 million Azure AD and Microsoft Services Accounts. “For the leaked credentials for which we found a match, we force a password reset.
