Hackers stole Samsung's internal data as well as the source code of Galaxy devices, according to today's company confirmation.

News of the possible breach was first reported earlier this month, with a hacking team called Lapsus $ taking responsibility. The team, which also recently broke with Nvidia, shared screenshots that allegedly showed about 200 GB of stolen data, including source code used by Samsung for encryption and biometric unlocking on Galaxy hardware.

In a statement today, Samsung did not confirm or deny the identity of the hackers, nor whether or not they had stolen data on encryption and biometrics. However, the company said that no personal data belonging to either employees or customers was received.

We read in the company statements at Bloomberg News and SamMobile:

"There was a security breach in relation to certain internal data of the company. According to our initial analysis, the breach includes a source code related to the operation of Galaxy devices, but does not include the personal information of our consumers or employees. At present, we do not expect any impact on our business or our customers. We have implemented measures to prevent further such incidents and we will continue to serve our customers without interruption ".

In the case of the recent Nvidia invasion, the hacker group Lapsus $ tried to blackmail the company, threatening to leak data on the Internet, unless Nvidia removes them cryptocurrency mining restrictors from some GPUs and made the drivers for these open source graphics cards.
