This time, Nvidia came up with a cyber attack, not about the launch of a new graphics card.
SHOCKING DATA VIOLATION AT NVIDIA
It was alleged that the company was exposed to a cyber attack last week. Nvidia has now confirmed to several publishers that hackers stole data from the company during last week’s breach.
“We know that the threat actor got employee credentials and some Nvidia information from our systems and started leaking them online,” the company said.
While Nvidia did not specify what was stolen, the group named LAPSUS$ behind the breach allegedly obtained 1TB of data, including files related to Nvidia hardware and software. While it was claimed that the hackers demanded that the company make payments in crypto money in order to keep the data confidential, it was stated that Nvidia has not yet met with the group.
It is reported that Nvidia is now trying to analyze what information LAPSUS$ has leaked to the internet, while it is reported that the company does not expect any disruption in the service.
THEY STARTED LEAKING
According to TechPowerUp, LAPSUS$ has begun leaking a 19GB archive that allegedly contains information about Nvidia’s software, including the source code of the company’s DLSS technology.
