A group of hackers are threatening to release 250GB of Nvidia hardware related data unless the company agrees to open source all its drivers.

The group infiltrated NVIDIA systems are threatening to release more confidential information.

The group claims that NVIDIA might be trying to communicate with them to prevent future leaks. The group has already published information on NVIDIA DLSS technology and upcoming architectures.

Nvidia said it had retaliated against the hacker group known as "Lapsus$" by sneaking back into the hacker's system and encrypting the stolen data. The group claimed that it had a backup of the data, though.

Initially, the group was thought to be Russian hackers due to the timing of the hack, which coincided with the Russian invasion.
