Uh-oh, it doesn’t look like NVIDIA’s security “experts” will be getting any real sleep in the days ahead, as The Telegraph has shared a report revealing that green team has been hit with a major cyber attack that “completely compromised” the company’s internal systems, taking parts of its business offline for two days.
Here’s what an NVIDIA spokesman had to say about it: “We are investigating an incident. We don’t have any additional information to share at this time.”
Great, thanks. But according to The Telegraph’s report, which actually has some specifics, NVIDIA’s email systems and developer tools both suffered from outages over the last two days. A malicious network intrusion is to blame, sources say.
Of course, what everyone really wants to know is whether any data has been stolen from NVIDIA. Maybe we’ll be getting the specifications for the GeForce RTX 40 Series early?

- The suspected hack comes amid Russian cyberwarfare against Ukraine and heightened security concerns about attacks on the West in retaliation for hitting the Kremlin with sanctions. There is no evidence linking Nvidia’s outages to the conflict.
- The intrusion was described by one insider as having “completely compromised” the company’s internal systems, although some email services were working on Friday. It is unclear if any data has been stolen or deleted from Nvidia or from its customers, or if the attack has merely disrupted its systems, and customers said they had not been informed of any incident.
- The company is not yet believed to have identified a culprit.
