NVIDIA Servers were compromised in a major cyberattack

Cyberattack targeting NVIDIA completely compromises parts of its operations, company takes revenge by encrypting their systems in a retaliatory attack

LAPSU$ based off South America is a group of cybercriminals whose main job is extortion managed to gain access to NVIDIA's servers and encrypted their systems and took off with 1TB of data. NVIDIA on the other hand were quick to respond and managed to gain access to LAPSU$'s systems and managed to encrypt their personal system and managed to save their data by encrypting it back. The hackers say that they have managed to make a backup copy but that seems to be a rumor at this stage. Anyways I fully support NVIDIA on this matter and the hackers have got a taste of their own medicine.
