According to threads, Nvidia’s internal network has been hacked and several key systems such as email and developer tools have been down for the past few days. According to the CRN website, Nvidia is investigating the “incident” and its response to CRN’s request said: “Our business and commercial activities continue uninterrupted. We are still working on assessing the nature and scope of the event and do not have additional information at this time.”
Interestingly, documents filed by Nvidia with regulators back in October 2021 contain a warning about a possible attack on the company in the future, addressed to shareholders. At the time, the company said it was difficult to defend against attacks as they were becoming more “widespread and sophisticated.” The document goes on to say: “Our efforts to prevent and overcome these and similar problems may increase our costs and may not be successful. We may experience interruptions, delays, service interruptions and the loss of existing or potential customers.”
There is no exact information about who attacked Nvidia and for what purpose. According to some reports, a South American ransomware group called LAPSU$ is behind the hack. According to the published screenshots, as a result of the hack, the group stole about 1 TB of data from Nvidia. In response, Nvidia allegedly hacked LAPSU$ and encrypted the stolen data, but LAPSU$ kept a backup copy.
Patching for Inception vulnerability in AMD processors can reduce performance by more than two times
Fixing the recently found AMD Inception vulnerability, as shown by the first tests, leads to a huge decrease in performance.
The authors of the Phoronix portal tested the AMD Epyc 7763 CPU with a new firmware designed to fix the vulnerability, and found that in a number of tasks there was no impact on performance, but in some the drop turned out to be simply huge: up to 54%, that is, more than twice. Most often, a significant decrease in performance is recorded in applications working with databases, code compilation, design and image processing.
You need to understand that in this case we are talking about the server processor and the corresponding tests under Linux. How bad things are in the case of consumer Ryzen is not yet clear.
Microsoft’s built-in antivirus began to detect and block pirated activations of Windows 10 and Windows 11
Microsoft has released an update to Microsoft Defender, the built-in antivirus solution for Windows operating systems.
Update number 1.395.318.0 for Windows 10 and Windows 11 adds detection of various Trojans, ransomware and backdoors, and also brings “critical” performance fixes that will improve PC performance, but not only.
However, for many users, the most noticeable change will be that Microsoft Defender has learned to detect pirated versions of the OS, reset activation and block the AutoKMS (Key Management Service), which hackers and pirates used to activate Windows for free. This is one of the most popular tools for bypassing the Microsoft licensing system.
Telegram blocked for national security reasons and to preserve the integrity of personal data in Iraq
The Iraqi Ministry of Communications has announced that it has blocked the popular messaging app Telegram for national security reasons and in order to preserve the integrity of the personal data of users who were allegedly mistreated by the app.
The app is widely used in Iraq for messaging and as a source of news and content sharing. Some channels contain large amounts of personal information, including the names, addresses, and family ties of Iraqis.
The ministry said in a statement that it asked the app to shut down “platforms that leak data from official government agencies and citizens’ personal data… but the company has not responded to any of the requests.”
“The Ministry of Communications reaffirms its respect for the rights of citizens to freedom of speech and communication without prejudice to the security of the state and its institutions,” the statement said.
Telegram did not respond to a request for comment.
