cyberattacks on nvidia and samsung

NVIDIA and Samsung have reportedly been hacked by the same extortion group.

After recent reports of NVIDIA suffering a massive data breach last week, it appears the same hacker group has now targeted Samsung.

According to Bleeping Computer, the hacking group called “Lapsus$” that first came after NVIDIA has now comprised Samsung and is starting to release confidential information.

The social media post below further explains the initial situation with the NVIDIA hacking:

It appears Samsung is now in the crosshairs of Lapsus$ as the hacking group started to tease a Samsung data leak last week based on an image with C/C++ directives in Samsung software.

The hacker group has claimed to obtain over 190GB of files, including the source code for “every Trusted Applet (TA) installed in Samsung’s TrustZone environment used for sensitive operations.”

The group has also allegedly stolen biometric tech algorithms from Samsung. This includes data for facial recognition technology and fingerprint information.

Even worse, Lapsus$ has illegally obtained the “bootloader source code” for all recent Samsung devices. This is the technology that’s used for authorizing and authenticating Samsung accounts.

This may mean that any users of Samsung products may want to change their accounts before they are put in potential harm.

Overall, it’s unclear how the Lapsus$ hacking group plans to use this information from both NVIDIA and Samsung.

Either way, cyberattacks from unknown hacker groups are typically not promising when it comes to user data privacy.

This isn’t the last story we will see on hackings, data breaches, etc.

    Wow this is crazy because I’m one of those people who confirmed to this technological age kicking and screaming and this is why but I guess we’ll be okay with our VPNs! Thanks Troy for all that you do!

  2. Thank you Troy. Your advice is appreciated. Because of you I will always use a VPN. Been learning alot from you. Please keep the content coming.

  3. Im in no way as tech genius. So I’m grateful to be a member here that Troypoint is looking out for us seems paramount. I no longer subscribe to IP Vanish, but I think what Troy says is important and I do now always use my current VPN. OK thoughts on the article. I’m kind of on the fence here. I kind of understand the demands but also have to support NVidia’s right to free enterprise. This is America and if its their creation they have the right to profit from the intellectual properties and if given full open source nobody’s gonna donate enough to pay the bills. Will the hackers help. No they wont. Its almost a terroristic threat. And we don’t negotiate with terrorist. I have nothing to lose however NVidia has. So there’s my fence. Come knock me off or convince me otherwise leave it alone.
