Nvidia Suffers Cyberattack

March 2, 2022


A threat actor leaked Nvidia Corp. employee credentials and some company proprietary information online after the chipmaker’s systems ended up breached in what appears like a ransomware attack.
The Santa Clara, California-based company became aware of the breach on Feb. 23. The company is analyzing the leaked information and does not anticipate any disruption to the company’s business.
A ransomware group under the name “Lapsus$” reportedly claimed to be responsible for the leak and seemingly has information about the schematics, drivers and firmware, among other data, about the graphics chips.
