Samsung Confirms Hackers Stole Galaxy Source Code

14 March

The South Korean tech giant confirmed hackers have stolen internal company data and source code for Galaxy devices. A cyberattack that was reported over the weekend led to some Samsung data being stolen. Samsung confirmed the theft on Monday. Korea's electronics giant disclosed in a statement that customer and employee credentials were unaffected by a hack, but "some source code relating to the operation of Galaxy devices" were stolen.

Lapsus$, a South American hacking group, has claimed responsibility, although Samsung has not revealed the perpetrators. In addition to bootloader source code for all Samsung's latest devices as well as biometric authentication code and on-device encryption code for Galaxy phones and tablets, the organization has released a 190GB torrent file. Qualcomm's confidential data may also have been accessed by attackers.

The disclosure came less than a week after the same group admitted it procured 1TB of information from chip giant NVIDIA, including schematics and source code. It was on February 23rd that the company first learned of the attack; Lapsus$ then demanded a ransom be paid in cryptocurrency so that NVIDIA's files wouldn't be released. As a result of NVIDIA's failure to respond, the company's DLSS technology source code along with information about up to six unannounced graphics cards was leaked online.

Samsung confirmed later in a statement that it does not anticipate any impact on its business or customers. The company has implemented measures to prevent further incidents, and it will continue to serve its customers without interruption. Our team has enquired with Lapsus$ to see if Samsung received the same cryptocurrency demands as Lapsus$.
