Samsung Reveals A Second data breach this year: Are you one of the affected?

On Friday, Samsung sent a notification via email to its users in the US, notifying them about data breach that occurred in July 2022

Samsung recently revealed a cybersecurity data breach that occurred in late July. The incident – discovered on August 4 – resulted in a breach of personal information, including names, contact and demographic information, dates of birth, and product registration information, according to a September 2 notice from Samsung to customers. The corporation informed customers that social security or credit card information kept in the system was unaffected by the data breach.

Samsung said in the blog post that it had taken measures to safeguard the compromised systems. Additionally, it has teamed up with a well-known outside cybersecurity company and is collaborating with law authorities on the matter. Furthermore, the company has created a FAQ page on its website with additional questions, solutions, and recommended actions.

Although the number of people impacted has not yet been disclosed, Samsung warns that if you have received a notification, your data may have been compromised. Samsung advises people impacted by the breach to be on the lookout for phishing scams, regularly watch their credit profiles, read the security notice FAQ, and review the company’s privacy policy. If you’re worried, you can ask questions regarding the incident by email at seainfo@email.support.samsung.com.

It’s not the first time Samsung has struggled with a security problem, nor is it its first in 2022. Back in March, Samsung disclosed that it had experienced a cybersecurity breach that exposed confidential business information. The leaked information is believed to have contained source code from its partners, including proprietary data from Qualcomm, a US chipmaker that supplies chipsets for Samsung Galaxy smartphones marketed in the US. However, according to Samsung, neither its employees’ nor customers’ personal information was impacted. The company assured at the time that it had taken precautions to prevent attacks in the future. The Lapsus$ hacker organization had previously claimed responsibility for the breach.
