Taiwan-based chipmaker and Apple supplier TSMC has brought its plants back online after a cyber incident that caused them to shutter operations over the weekend. The malware in question is said to have been WannaCry, which is familiar from last year's widespread infestation. The company said the outbreak happened during software installation of a new tool, which then evidently carried the infection into other parts of the company's network. TSMC added that "data integrity and confidential information was not compromised."
The incident appears to have been due to operator carelessness, a secondary infection and not a direct attack, as had been widely feared in Taiwan when the malware infection was first reported. TSMC's CEO bluntly told the press, "This is purely our negligence so I don't think there is any hacking behavior." TSMC attributes the infection to failure to scan software for known threats before installation.
