Chipmaker Nvidia says hackers stole knowledge from community and posted it on-line

SANTA CLARA (BLOOMBERG) – Officers at chipmaker Nvidia stated hackers stole proprietary info once they breached the corporate’s networks and have been leaking the info on-line.

“We’re conscious that the menace actor took worker credentials and a few Nvidia proprietary info from our programs and has begun leaking it on-line,” the Santa Clara, California-based firm stated in an announcement. “Our crew is working to analyse that info. We don’t anticipate any disruption to our enterprise or our capability to serve our prospects on account of the incident.”

Nvidia stated it grew to become conscious of the compromise on Feb 23. A cyber-criminal group has been publicly extorting the corporate on its Telegram channel.

Cyber-security specialists have speculated that the hacking group, referred to as LAPSU$, might have members positioned in South America and Western Europe. Bloomberg, citing an individual aware of the incident, initially reported that assault seemed to be a ransomware assault. In such assaults, hackers deploy malware that encrypt pc networks, after which demand a ransom.

However firm officers stated no malicious malware was deployed. As an alternative, the hackers stole knowledge and publicly threatened the corporate with releasing it, until they eliminated limits that impeded cryptocurrency mining on a sequence of Nvidia graphics playing cards.

After Nvidia declined to interact, the hackers started posting knowledge on-line.
