by Jordi Bercial 3 hours ago This afternoon we announced that the hacker group LAPSUS$ threatened NVIDIA with the publication of 250GB of confidential and secret information thatin the case of being actually published, could provide insights into the company’s plans, both immediate and several years ahead, in addition to revealing absolutely everything they work on. However, this would not take place until Friday of this week and only if some conditions are not met, but it seems that for the group of hackers that has carried out the data leak, filtering them out isn’t enough, and they’ve managed to use them to bypass mining protection altogether.
Recall that at the time NBMiner was able to bypass mining protection to a certain extentbut it seems that this is the closest case to fully circumventing NVIDIA’s anti-mining protection, which, while we might think is there primarily to protect gamers, It is not unreasonable to think that it also exists to boost the sales of its mining cards.
The price to pay for the jump to the blockade will not be low, because the group asks for a minimum of one million dollars plus a certain percentage of the mining profits to be agreed upon.
