NVIDIA Servers Compromised in major Cyberattack as per reports by The Telegraph UK
Cyberattack targeting NVIDIA completely compromises parts of its operations, company states that the cyberattack is cuurently under investigation
In their exclusive report, The Telegraph reported that a cyberattack was initiated on Nvidia at the same the Russian Cyber Warfare Division started their cyber attacks against ukraine. This comes after all major NATO allies have imposed major sanctions on Russia and this maybe the underlying reason behind this attack on companies like NVIDIA.
[UPDATE]: Nvidia has confirmed that the cyberattack had no relation to the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict.
An Nvidia spokesman said: “We are investigating an incident. We don’t have any additional information to share at this time."

The report further states that the cyberattack has compromised many parts of NVIDIA's systems and there are already reports from many users regarding service disruption. The scale of the attack is currently unknown but as per preliminary speculations it seems to be a major one as NVIDIA has taken many systems offline to stop the intrusion before it spreads any further.
NVIDIA's mail servers were also partially operational during this time so it's entirely likely that there might have been a breach in confidential documents. But it is not confirmed yet if any data was stolen. Another major concern is that NVIDIA will have to make sure that any software that they have provided to end users is free from any Virus or Malware or any hidden malicious code that may wreck havok.
