Nvidia hacked: Group Lapsus$ threatens to release bypass solution for Hash Limiter

The hacker group Lapsus$ threatens to publish stolen data from Nvidia. Among them is a solution for bypassing the hash rate limiter of graphics cards.

The hacker group Lapsus$ has allegedly stolen a terabyte of data. Among them are said to be source codes of GPU drivers and firmware. However, a bypass solution for the so-called Lite Hash Rate (LHR) is likely to be much more interesting for miners. This limits the capacity for mining cryptocurrencies of the current Nvidia graphics cards. According to the hacker group, this solution is for sale.

The group published part of the data in the night to today. This is mainly source code.

It was already known last week that Nvidia was hacked. There has been no official statement from Nvidia itself so far. The company has only stated that an incident is being investigated. According to reports, those responsible at Nvidia know which data was hacked.
