One of the world’s biggest manufacturer of electronics, Samsung, disclosed on Friday that it had recently experienced a data breach, the second such incident to be acknowledged by the business this year.
“Today, we are taking a moment to inform our customers that we recently discovered a cybersecurity incident that affected some of their information, unauthorised third party acquired information from some of Samsung’s U.S. systems.” Samsung informed in a statement.
Social Security and credit card numbers, according to Samsung, were unaffected, but some customer data, including name, contact and demographic details, date of birth, and product registration data, were affected.
Samsung has acknowledged a data breach twice so far this year. The business acknowledged in March that the Lapsus$ hacker group, which also compromised Nvidia, Microsoft, and T-Mobile, had gained and exposed about 200 gigabytes of private information, including the source code for numerous technologies and biometric unlock algorithms.
