Samsung says hackers accessed customer data during year-long breachReading Time: < 1 minutes
Samsung has admitted that hackers accessed the personal data of U.K.-based customers during a year-long breach of its systems.
Samsung declined to answer further questions about the incident, such as how many customers were affected or how hackers accessed its internal systems.
In a letter sent to affected customers, Samsung admitted that attackers exploited a vulnerability in an unnamed third-party business application to access the personal information of customers who made purchases at Samsung U.K.’s store between July 1, 2019 and June 30, 2020.
The letter, which was shared on X (formerly Twitter), Samsung said it didn’t discover the compromise until more than three years later, on November 13, 2023.
This incident is the third data breach that Samsung has disclosed in the past two years.
In September 2022, the company confirmed in a brief notice that attackers had accessed some information from some of Samsung’s U.S. systems but declined to say how many customers were affected. Prior to this, in March 2022, Samsung confirmed that it had suffered a breach after Lapsus$ hackers claimed to have obtained and leaked almost 200 gigabytes of confidential data from the company’s systems, including source code for various technologies and algorithms for biometric unlock operations.
