The American technology company Nvidia, known for its computer graphic cards, has been compromised by Lapsus$ ransomware.
Nvidia is a undeniably high-value target, having reported a revenue of over $16 billion last year, and employing over 18,000 people worldwide. The ransomware group claims to have stolen 1 TB of sensitive data from Nvidia; some employee data has already been leaked.
Nvidia did fight back, as the attackers had to use a VPN client which also uses a MDM solution in order to connect to the corporate network. After the company realized this, they used this channel to connect back and encrypt the stolen data at the attacker’s side.
