Cyber Hackers Target Vodafone After Breaching Nvidia, Samsung

  • Vodafone Group PLC VOD is investigating Lapsus$' claims of a data breach, CNBC reports.
  • The group noted for breaching Samsung Electronics Co Ltd's SSNLF source codes of Galaxy-branded devices, threatened to leak Vodafone's source code.
  • In February, the group also accepted responsibility for NVIDIA Corp's NVDA data breach.
  • On March 7, the group initiated a poll on the Telegram app asking, "What should we leak next?" followed by three options.
  • The first option is ~200 GB worth of Vodafone source code. The poll ends on March 13.
  • The other two options are the source code and databases of Portuguese media corporation Impresa and the source code for Argentinian e-commerce companies MercadoLibre Inc MELI and MercadoPago.
  • Vodafone's Portuguese unit faced a cyberattack in February, disrupting its services.
