After a successful attack on Nvidia’s servers, a group of hackers hiding under the name LAPSUS $ revealed another “achievement” – acquiring 190 GB of valuable Samsung data.
According to Bleeping Computer, the attackers boasted of the acquisition in a special note, which included a glance at the Korean corporation’s C / C ++ code.
Soon after, hackers explained that they came into possession of many important files from the point of view of security, including the code responsible for booting in the latest devices of the manufacturer, as well as dealing with user authorization.
The data has already been published in a torrent file, containing around 190 GB of files. It is currently unclear if this is all information stolen.
Samsung has not yet taken an official position, but company representatives do not deny that the break-in took place and – as reported – are now “assessing” the situation.
