March 5, 2022: Samsung Hit in Cyberattack

South Korea-based Samsung suffered a cyberattack over the weekend, but it doesn’t see there being any impact on its business or customers, company officials said Monday.
South American hacking group Lapsus$ said it had stolen 190GB of confidential data, including source code, from the tech giant’s servers. The group also posted snapshots of data online.
Samsung confirmed in a statement there was a security breach, but it said there was no compromise of customer personal information.
“We were recently made aware that there was a security breach relating to certain internal company data. Immediately after discovering the incident, we strengthened our security system,” the company said.

The intrusion took place in May by what is believed to be an attack group operating out of North Korea, said a KAERI spokesperson. The incident occurred May 14 and the attackers got in through a vulnerability in a virtual private network (VPN) server. KAERI is the government organization that conducts research on nuclear power and nuclear fuel technology.
