TSMC said the virus that brought down its semiconductor fabrication plants was a variant of WannaCry.
The company held a press conference and outlined what it has discovered so far.
As previously stated, TSMC, a major supplier to Apple’s iPhone, said a “misoperation” led to the virus. TSMC had to bring plants offline on Friday and recouped 80 percent of capacity by late Sunday. The company will take a 3 percent revenue hit.
It’s been a little more than a year since the gigantic WannaCry ransomware cyber attackcaused chaos across the world, hitting more than 230,000 computers in total.
