Nvidia hackers offer to sell GPU hash rate limiter bypass

2022/03/01 08:07

According to Beincrypto, a hacking group that claims to have infiltrated Nvidia servers is attempting to sell some of the data which includes a way to unlock graphics cards for Ethereum mining. In late February, semiconductor giant Nvidia reported that it was investigating a potential cyber-attack that affected parts of its online business. The hacking group LAPSUS$ has claimed responsibility adding that they managed to steal 1TB (a terabyte) of data from company servers. According to computer hardware outlet PCmag, the group is now offering to sell that data in addition to details on unlocking high-end Nvidia GPUs for crypto mining. The hackers claim to be in possession of customized software that is capable of easily unlocking Nvidia’s “Lite Hash Rate” limiter for its RTX 3000 series graphics cards. In an effort to discourage crypto miners from buying up all of their cards, and to leave some for the gamers, Nvidia introduced an “Ethereum hash rate limiter” in early 2021 on its flagship models. The effort didn’t really work since miners bought up older cards that were still powerful enough to mine, exacerbating the shortage and sending GPU prices sky-high.
