Samsung has Told That in the breach made through its Security Resource Center, hackers are expected to get information such as customer names and contacts as well as product registrations. However, the company has not given information about the number and regions of customers affected by this. “We have taken steps to secure the systems and have hired a leading cyber security firm. We are also working closely with law enforcement agencies,” Samsung’s website states. The company said that customers have been informed about the matter.
To avoid such cases, the company has advised users to be vigilant and not to click on links in suspicious emails. Samsung told that this has not affected its devices. Earlier, the company’s sensitive data was stolen in a hacker attack in March. It included the source code of Samsung Galaxy smartphones. The company had told that the data of its customers or employees is safe. A hacking group had taken the responsibility of this cyber attack.
Recently Samsung Bitcoin Completed the development of its three 3 nanometer (nm) foundry processing chip to facilitate key mining. There are reports that the company is ready to start trial production of this chip. The use of such application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) chips can help reduce energy consumption in bitcoin mining. Chinese firm PanSemi could be the first customer of this chip. PanSemi designs AISC for processing bitcoin mining. Samsung is improving the controls for its chip, which could increase the efficiency of bitcoin mining by around 30 percent.
