Samsung US Says Customer Data Compromised in July Data Breach


As part of the incident, which was identified roughly a month ago, an unauthorized third party gained access to some of Samsung’s US systems and exfiltrated information stored on them.

Although it had determined that the personal information of some of its customers was compromised in the attack, Samsung took nearly a month to disclose the incident publicly.

“In late July 2022, an unauthorized third party acquired information from some of Samsung’s U.S. systems. On or around August 4, 2022, we determined through our ongoing investigation that personal information of certain customers was affected,” Samsung said in a September 2 notice.
