Leaked source code after major data breach at Samsung



Samsung now confirms that the company has suffered a data breach, which among other things resulted in them being robbed of internal company data and source code for Galaxy devices. The hacker group Lapsus$, which recently broke in and stole data from Nvidia, has claimed responsibility for the intrusion, but Samsung itself has not said anything about who is behind the intrusion.

The hackers have released more than 190 gigabytes of data that was stolen during the breach, including source code used for encryption and for biometric unlocking of Galaxy devices. However, there is no information on how much information was stolen and what it covers. Samsung says, however, that no personal information has been leaked, either regarding customers or employees. They also say that the intrusion will not affect the company or their customers, and that measures have been taken to stop future attacks.
