NVIDIA Kills Online Store In Response To Hacker Claims

Soulskill posted about 2 years ago | from the have-you-tried-updating-your-drivers dept.

Security 70

wiredmikey writes "Following a shutdown of its 'NVIDIA Developer Zone,' earlier this week after the online community for developers had been hacked, the graphics chip maker on Friday also shut down its online store. The group of hackers behind the attack, going by the handle of 'The Apollo 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,' read a statement posted on the site posted. The claimed attackers wrote, '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.'"

I can still remember my Diamond Monster 3D card, Then later added a second one with the SLI(?) cable. Good old times.

Re:Vigilante circus. (3)

DigiShaman (671371) | about 2 years ago | (#40650933)

You must be talking about the Monster 3D II. The original Diamond Monster 3D was a Voodoo 1 card. SLI wasn't implemented until the Voodoo 2 series.

Ok, turning back the wayback machine here. But here's a breakdown (from memory) of my old but much loved gaming rig. The year was late 1996

CPU = Intel Pentium 166
Motherboard = Biostar AT with 430FX chipset
RAM = 24MB of EDO
Audio = Sound Blaster AWE34 PnP (long ISA card with upgradable SIMM banks)
Modem = USRobotics Sportster 33.6 (internal ISA card)
Storage1 = 1GB Conner IDE HDD
Storage2 = 4x CDROM IDE
Storage3 = 3.25 1.44MB Floppy drive
Video1 = Diamond Stealth64 Video S3-Vision968 PCI with 2MB (upgradable to 4MB) of VRAM.
Video2 = Diamond Monster 3D
Input = Microsoft serial mouse and some generic AT keyboard.

That machine was a BOSS for its time. It owned all gaming back then. Never broke a sweat when playing Duke Nukem3D.

Total cost = shitloads. Actually, I don't remember. My parents paid for the base build as a graduation present. I just paid for the gaming upgrades.

Re:Vigilante circus. (1)

sortius_nod (1080919) | about 2 years ago | (#40653025)

I think I've built upwards of 100 of those machines in my time as a young tech in a small computer store. Here in AU, something like that would have been in the $3000-$4000 range, depending on brands used. Such a glorious time in computers... for retailers.

Re:Vigilante circus. (2)

Runaway1956 (1322357) | about 2 years ago | (#40653285)

If any of my computers had ever started sweating, I think I would have just quietly stood up, and backed away from the damned thing. Very quietly. And, backed very far away. Scary idea . . .

Re:Vigilante circus. (1)

Errtu76 (776778) | about 2 years ago | (#40655545)

Yep, Monster 3D II indeed. My primary card was the same as you, but I invested in a Gravis Ultrasound card for music since I liked the Assembly demoscene and that was a must have :)

And I wanted a big harddisk so I spent about $600 on a 2G Quantum Bigfoot ;)

I think my phone now has better specs than my system back then, but yeah, gaming ruled!

Also I upgraded my mobo and CPU (a 486DX2-80) to a P1 133 MHz so I could play Moto Racer without a problem.

They must be disgruntled about 3DFX like I am.

3DFX has no one to blame for their downfall but themselves. (This is coming from a former 3DFX fanboy.)

They blew a TON of cash buying the card maker STB, a manufacturer that had major quality issues.
Their Direct X support was rubbish, instead they concentrated on Glide.
They took waaaay too long to get the Voodoo 4/5 to market, and then another 6 months of paper release.
And lastly they concentrated solely on the high end market. Nvidia made bank from their low cost Riva and TNT lines selling to OEMs which gave them money and time to come out with their GeForce line. By the time the GeForce 2 came out, 3DFX had blundered their way into bankruptcy.

Three months after I finally got my hands on a brand new Voodoo 5500, 3DFX folded up shop.

Re:Vigilante circus. (2)

DigiShaman (671371) | about 2 years ago | (#40651121)

To be fair, DirectX was still in it's infancy with version 2.0 that came with Window 95 OSR2. If you had the original version of Windows 95, DirectX was not included. It got installed with whatever application used it. Also, the Direct3D portion was extremely limited in functionality. Glide on the other hand was a very close cousin of OpenGL if I remember. In fact, a Voodoo1 card could run QuakeGL without trouble. Although it does beg the question as to why 3Dfx didn't just stick with OpenGL as the standard to begin with. Could be worse. It could have been worse. They could have ended up like Rendition with their own RRedline API.

I'm still amazed that someone as new as nVidia could come in and take on the establishment that was S3, Rendition, 3Dfx, PowerVR, and Matrox. Eventually even leaving SGI to wither on the vine in obsolescence. Just wow!

Re:Vigilante circus. (0)

Anonymous Coward | about 2 years ago | (#40655859)

Which made sense back then since DirectX/3d was highly inferior when it came to hardware accelerated games.
So I highly doubt that was the reason they went under.

TemperedAlchemist (2045966) | about 2 years ago | (#40650783)

Ha, you said good video cards!

Sorry, I had to post it before someone else would. Really I don't hate on Nvidia, being second to AMD in the desktop gaming market has caught them a bit of flak, but they still perform great. And they're top when it comes to mobile graphics (not that mobile gaming is all that big a market).

So alright, their marketing may be a bit overzealous, but that's no reason to hack them over. Hackers are probably just mad their nvidia cards melted when they figured out what overclocking is (hey, I wouldn't be surprised!) and then guise it under, "oooOOOOoooo nvidia is an evil company we're the good guys like Anonymous and Lulzsec".

So let's hear what Nvidia has done that's so evil it warrants them being hacked.

Re:Vigilante circus. (1)

Huh. I guess you haven't heard about the 5xx or 6xx lines of Nvidia cards? AMD's falling further and further behind, and as an avid supporter and exclusive buyer of AMD cards myself, I can understand why you're feeling defensive. But I'm afraid the benchmarks don't lie - AMD is in trouble.

Re:Vigilante circus. (1)

Indeed, which is why your post was wrong if you meant it to be in the past tense. I read it as the present tense because that's the way you wrote it.

What you said: "Really I don't hate on Nvidia, being [present participle] second to AMD in the desktop gaming market has caught [present perfect] them a bit of flak, but they still perform great."

What you should have said was: "Really I don't hate on Nvidia. Having been second to AMD in the desktop gaming market caught them a bit of flak, but they still perform great."

Or something else that wouldn't have been so misleading. And while I'm sure somebody could nitpick the grammar in my post, (like the previous sentence fragment), the gist is correct.

As far as I am concerned they blow, at least in mobile.

Lately I have been looking at high end laptops with docking ports capable of running multiple screens. They are marketed for engineers/CAD, etc. and specifically talk about and show multiple screen setups (docking port required of course). NVidia can't deliver. *Only* AMD delivers the multiple screens.

NVidia can add thousands at the high end to the cost of the laptop as well, and not even add multiple screens. AMD is the bottom offering every time, and can. Go figure.

Justice doesn't mean "punishment for illegal actions," it means punishment for immoral action. The legal structure has co-opted this term, and conflated it with law. Please don't let that interfere with your thinking.

That said, I don't see what heinous actions Nvidia has taken. Then again, I also have not read the article.

Re:Vigilante circus. (1)

Darkness404 (1287218) | about 2 years ago | (#40650803)

Laws != moral. It is not just to as a human to punish another human for an immoral action because then we become tyrannical gods. Laws should have the sole purpose of punishing harm done to individuals and their property without their consent such as murder and theft. If we change justice to including morals we pervert the meaning of justice. Is it just to stone an adulteress? Of course not, but in many cultures being an adulteress is immoral.

Laws should just cover the bare minimum, don't murder, don't steal, etc. Morals fill in the rest and morals are quite different between each person, even people with the same culture and beliefs. You only need to look at the 14th chapter of Romans to see that.

Despite that I'll be modded into oblivion for this. This isn't any different that what OWS protesters have been doing for months on end, and it hasn't been any different than what the student protesters have been doing in Quebec have been doing for months on end. In both cases they've been going off the deep end and getting more violent, believing that "corporations" or "schools" or "wall street" need to be brought to justice for crimes against who knows what. I'm sure the grievances are very valid in their minds, and whatever they tell themselves, or are being told by whatever professor or community organizer or handler is telling them to believe, but that doesn't make it so.

This isn't vigilantism, this is simple defacement and theft. Vigilantism is motivated by a desire for justice, and a perceived indifference or selective enforcement of laws. They haven't stated what crimes NVidia should be held accountable for; which means there probably aren't any. Some examples of what 'proper' vigilantism might be motivated by would be illegal dumping of toxic waste, mistreatment of their workforce, manipulation of stock prices, colluding with other manufacturers to fix the prices of key information commodities, or excerting monopoly powers over a market.

they sell ads that pays for your use.

they collect your information they do that to target adds to pay for your use of their service. don't like that don't use them. unlike a os or hardware you can switch services to any competitor with a couple key strokes, just type WWW.bing.com or WWW.ask.com or WWW.duckduckgo.com or WWW.yahoo.com etc,etc,etc...

"but their scripts are embedded in web pages i visit" then talk to the page owners about it. maybe that i because they use them for a essential part of their own services in that case get over it or leave. if not grab no-script and block Google.

they don't lock you out of your own hardware like Microsoft plans on doing in 8 or Sony does with play-station. they aren't attacking everyone under the sun for having tablets with a flat screen and four sides like apple.

they have made a few oops like adding every email contact to your friends list but they apologized and fixed their mistake. there was also must use real name clause in their T.O.S. not really all that unusual a requirement that they won't do squat all if you ignore it, lie people its the internet.

just because they have the potential for evil does not make them evil.

What's disgusting about NVIDIA? Is this related to Linus' public flogging of the company?

I interned there a few years ago and their explanation for the driver not being open sourced is true, though it might not please people. The bulk of the driver code is in a platform-agnostic library used by Windows, OSX, and Linux. This code is then adapted to each platform by a small separate team. This means that the Linux driver doesn't lag the Windows driver in support. Unfortunately it also means that to add the driver into the kernel they'd need a disjoint and likely non-trivial effort to refactor and keep the kernel version up to par. I won't judge who is in the right ideologically here, but to call it "disgusting" shows a gross lack of perspective.

Fool, if you are going to write your message to the world, learn some grammar. It is "too" not "to", "surprised" not "suprised", and you should have used malicious, not maliciously. You also used commas where periods should be, and you've created numerous run-on sentences. This should pass even second grade. You fail.
