Nvidia responds to "hack": internal information has indeed been stolen

Nvidia issued the latest statement to it on the "hack" rumors:

On February 23, 2022, NVIDIA discovered a cybersecurity incident affecting IT resources. Shortly after discovering the incident, we further hardened our network, mobilized cybersecurity incident response experts, and notified law enforcement.

We have no evidence of ransomware being deployed in the NVIDIA environment, nor can we establish that it is related to the Russia-Ukraine conflict. However, we know that intruders obtained employee information and some NVIDIA proprietary information from our systems and started leaking this information online. Our team is working hard to analyze this information. We do not expect this event to cause any disruption to our business or our ability to serve our customers.

Earlier that the hacker group LAPSUS$ claimed to have obtained 1TB of Nvidia data, including driver, schematic,s, or firmware information. In addition, the group is also selling algorithms for unlocking GA102 / GA104 GPU LHR V2 to lift mining restrictions on RTX 30 series graphics cards.
