Tech giant Samsung says cyber-attack caused no major harm

No personal information of its customers and employees was stolen and there will be no impact on its business operation, the tech giant Samsung said in a statement posted on the company’s internal forum

On Monday, the tech giant Samsung Electronics said that a recent cyber-attack by a hacking group on its system did not cause major harm to its business and customers.

No personal information of its customers and employees was stolen and there will be no impact on its business operation, the tech giant Samsung said in a statement posted on the company’s internal forum.

Without elaborating further, Samsung said, “There has been no personal data breach, although leaked information includes some source codes necessary to run the Galaxy phones”.

On Saturday, South American hacking group Lapsus$ claimed, including various source code related to authentication features, among others, it successfully hacked the tech giant’s system and obtained confidential data.

It claimed it leaked up to 190 gigabytes of stolen data online, available for download via torrent, reports Yonhap news agency.

As soon as it learned of the attempted hacking attack, it stepped up its security system to protect information, the tech giant said.

“We are looking for every means to stop additional data breach and protect employees and customers. We sincerely apologise for causing concerns”, it said.

Meanwhile, Samsung has suspended shipments of all of its products to Russia.

A statement from an unnamed Samsung representative reads, “Due to the current geopolitical developments, shipments to Russia have been suspended”.
