NVIDIA in even bigger trouble
Hackers that infiltrated NVIDIA systems are now threatening to release more confidential information unless the company commits to open sourcing their drivers.
Following (now) multiple reports of the ransom cyber attack on NVIDIA servers, the hacking group LAPSUS$ now demands NVIDIA should release their drivers for Windows, MacOS and Linux as open source. Should NVIDIA fail to meet this demand, the group threatens to release chipset files, graphics, and silicon information for existing and upcoming GPUs.
It is unclear what the stolen data contains, but the group confirmed that there are 250GB of hardware related data in their possession. Furthermore, the group confirmed they have evaluated NVIDIA position, which means that NVIDIA is might trying to communicate with the group to prevent future leaks.
The group has already published information on NVIDIA DLSS technology and upcoming architectures.
