Nvidia is confirming to The Verge, Bloomberg, Reuters, and others that it’s investigating an “incident” — hours after The Telegraph reported that the graphics chipmaking giant had experienced a devastating cyberattack that “completely compromised” the company’s internal systems over the past two days.

    “We are investigating an incident. Our business and commercial activities continue uninterrupted. We are still working to evaluate the nature and scope of the event and don’t have any additional information to share at this time,” reads a statement via Nvidia spokesman Hector Marinez.

    While Nvidia isn’t sharing any more details about the incident, The Telegraph reports that the company’s email systems and developer tools have been suffering from outages over the last two days following a “malicious network intrusion.”

    Citing an insider, the report claims that the company’s systems had been offline for two days but that portions of its email systems had started working on Friday.

    It’s not yet clear whether hackers obtained data on Nvidia or its customers, nor whether any of its partners were affected. Nvidia has not yet identified the culprit, and customers say they had not been informed of any incident, according to The Telegraph’s report.

    If a US-based company like Nvidia had been targeted, though, it could provoke retaliation from the United States. “If Russia pursues cyberattacks against our companies, our critical infrastructure, we’re prepared to respond,” President Biden said during his Thursday address.
