+ - NVIDIA Kills Online Store In Response to Hacker Claims->

Submitted by wiredmikey
wiredmikey (1824622) writes "Following a shutdown of its “NVIDIA Developer Zone,” earlier this week after the online community for developers had been hacked, graphics chip maker NVIDIA on Friday also shut down its online store located at store.nvidia.com.

The group of hackers behind the attack, going by the handle of “The Appollo Project”, made mention of the claimed compromise in its original post exhibiting its successful attack against the NVIDIA Developer Zone site.

While the company has shut down the online store, it has not acknowledged that a successful attack has taken place. “NVIDIA has suspended operation of the NVIDIA Gear Store (store.nvidia.com) as a precaution, following confirmed attacks on several of our other sites,” a statement on the site posted on Jun 13 read.

Commenting on the developer forum hack, the claimed attackers noted, “We aren't acting extremely maliciously, we've used this database to target disgusting corporations who deserve to be brought to justice.. and we are getting there, slowly but surely.”"
