Chipmaker Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. shut down
several of its factories last night after it its systems were
hit by a computer virus, reports Bloomberg.

TSMC is the largest semiconductor manufacturer in the world, and
supplies components for companies like ADM, Apple, Nvidia, and
Qualcomm. The company told Bloomberg that the virus infected a
“number of its fabrication tools,” but that the “degree of
infection varies” from factory to factory. Several have resumed
their operations, but others won’t come back online until
tomorrow. The company indicated that its factories weren’t
infected by a hacker.
