Knowledge extortionists who stole as much as 1 terabyte of information from Nvidia have delivered one of the uncommon ultimatums ever within the annals of cybercrime: permit Nvidia’s graphics playing cards to mine cryptocurrencies quicker or face the upcoming launch of the corporate’s crown-jewel supply code.

The group then went on to make the extremely uncommon demand: take away a function referred to as LHR, quick for “Lite Hash Charge,” or see the additional leaking of stolen knowledge.
