Samsung is investigating a potential cyberattack and data breach on an internal employee platform and several systems in South Korea.
On Tuesday, a group of hackers going by the name “Genesis Day” claimed it attacked Samsung’s offices in South Korea because of the country’s recent opening of a mission to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).
The group said it hacked the internal File Transfer Protocol service of the Samsung Group in South Korea as well as the internal employee system and the Samsung Group intranet.
They threatened to leak business data from Samsung’s operations in France and more.
“We are aware of the recent online posting and are in the process of verifying the claim,” a Samsung spokesperson told The Record.
