A group called Shadow Brokers released a new trove of NSA malware that likely targeted the company. The leak casts doubt on how safe NVIDIA’s technology was, especially after users were found to have been infected by Spyware using an expired certificate from DigiCert.

A malware has been released which uses NVIDIA’s stolen code signing certificates to sign the malicious app. This malware is capable of stealing data from your device, including your passwords and credit card information.

The effects of NVIDIA’s cyberattack are still being felt. Bad actors are already exploiting stolen data to construct malware, which has already been published online, in addition to email addresses, password hashes, and DLSS source code. Bypassing Windows security protections is made possible via NVIDIA code-signing certificates. Multiple trojans employing the stolen certificates have been discovered in the wild by researchers.

Two code signing certificates have been compromised as a result of the #NvidiaLeaks. Windows still permits their usage for driver signing even when they have expired.

It may be difficult to block applications with digitally signed certificates since they stop threat actors from installing malware on a PC. Malware might pass for updates or drivers, making it difficult to detect. However, there is still some hope since David Weston, Microsoft’s director of enterprise and OS security, has offered a way for administrators to enhance security safeguards. A user may manage which drivers are loaded using Windows Defender Application Control policies (WDAC).

The typical user finds it difficult to establish unique policies and rule sets. Things could become worse if anything is done poorly. It is anticipated that Microsoft and NVIDIA would work together to find a simpler solution.

By scanning at serial numbers, software experts can spot possible infection. The following serial numbers were discovered in the stolen certificates by security researchers Will Dormann and Kevin Beaumont.
