LAPSUS$ Hackers Claim Responsibility For Large Scale Corporate Attacks

The leading video games company Ubisoft may be the latest victim in a wave  of cyber attacks that has already affected chipmaker Nvidia and South Korean electronics giant Samsung.

Like the attack on Nvidia, the hackers targeted Samsung's critical source code for the Galaxy mobile phone product line.

The attack on Ubisoft disrupted some games, systems and services and appears to share the same characteristics as the group of hackers that attacked Nvidia and, in an unusual development, the LAPSUS$ hacking group has taken responsibility for both these breaches.

In a Telegram channel allegedly run by LAPSUS$, are claiminng responsibility for the Ubisoft incident, although in response to a user in the channel, the group “confirmed” that it did not target Ubisoft’s customer information.  The LAPSUS$ hacking group is considered one of the most prolific threat groups currently in action, with numerous high-profile businesses admitting to breaches at the hands of the newcomer, about which little is known.

Ubisoft said it believes that “at this time there is no evidence any player personal information was accessed or exposed as a by-product of this incident” and says that games and services are now “functioning normally.” Out of caution, the company also “initiated a company-wide password reset.” When asked for comment, Ubisoft a spokesperson said the company had no additional details to share.

News of the incident arrives amid a recent wave of high-profile hacks. Nvidia confirmed on March 1st that it was hacked and said that the hackers are leaking employee credentials and proprietary information while a week later Samsung confirmed that hackers stole internal company data and source code for Galaxy devices.
