Nvidia has admitted that employee and internal data was stolen in an apparent ransomware attack last week.

The chip behemoth initially gave little away, announcing only that its  “business and commercial activities continue uninterrupted” while the attack was investigated.

A new statement provided more information:

“Shortly after discovering the incident, we further hardened our network, engaged cybersecurity incident response experts, and notified law enforcement. We have no evidence of ransomware being deployed on the Nvidia environment or that this is related to the Russia-Ukraine conflict. However, we are aware that the threat actor took employee credentials and some Nvidia proprietary information from our systems and has begun leaking it online.”

Lapsus ransomware gang is believed to be responsible, with the group claiming that it has 1TB of Nvidia information in its possession.

Twitter screenshots suggest that the group claims to have  “complete silicon, graphics and computer chipset files for all recent Nvidia GPUs,” and threatened to release information regarding the organisation’s Lite Hash Rate technology (LHR).
