Even though the tech behemoth Samsung asserted that there will be no impact on its operations or customers, there is no denying that hackers had breached source code for the Samsung Galaxy smartphones.
Hackers infiltrated Samsung’s internal company database on Monday, getting entry to certain source codes for Galaxy-branded devices such as cellphones, the company claimed, reports CNBC.
The announcement arrives after the hacking organization Lapsus$ declared on its Telegram channel over the weekend that it had obtained 190 gigabytes of secret Samsung source code.
In its announcement, Samsung did not mention any particular hackers or specify what data was taken.
“We were recently made aware that there was a security breach relating to certain internal company data. Immediately after discovering the incident, we strengthened our security system,” a Samsung spokesperson told CNBC.

“According to our initial analysis, the breach involves some source codes relating to the operation of Galaxy devices, but does not include the personal information of our consumers or employees.”
The Galaxy brand refers to Samsung’s consumer electronics, such as smartphones and tablets.
According to the corporation, there will be no impact on its operations or customers.
Lapsus$ is the same gang that claimed responsible for last month’s data hack at chipmaker Nvidia.
