In the evening of August 6th, the Taiwan integrated circuit manufacturing Limited by Share Ltd (hereinafter referred to as TSI) held a press conference on the computer virus intrusion incident to make the latest explanation: the virus invasion was caused by the companys negligence when the company installed a new machine (equipment). The production line has been fully restored in the afternoon of 6.

Wei Zhe, the president of TZC, said at a press conference that the incident was a fault in the installation process of the new machine. The new machine was not isolated in the installation process and confirmed no virus re networking, causing the virus in the new machine to spread quickly after the Internet, and all the production lines were affected.

Wei Zhejia said the virus was a variant of the extortion virus WannaCry (want to cry). The symptoms were downtime or duplication. The more advanced automation, the more complex it is, the more difficult it is to recover. But the manufacturing data and customer information were not affected by the virus.

Prior to August 4th, TSMC indicated that the incident had a negative impact on the companys impact. The estimated third quarter revenue will be reduced by about 3%, and the gross margin will be about 1 percentage points. The 6 day press conference still maintains this judgment.

Wei Zhejia said that because of the incident, some customers would delay delivery, but he was very sure that he was back at full speed in the fourth quarter to minimize the impact on customers. The customer is very trusted to us and does not mention the problem of compensation at the moment.

TSMCs chip foundry business has a global market share of 56%. In addition to being the only supplier of apple iPhones core processor chips, TSI has 465 customers around the world, including almost all of the worlds major chip designers. Apple, Qualcomm, AMD, NVIDIA, Bo Tong, NJI Pu, HUAWEI chip Department Hass and the co generation company all rely on the manufacturing technology of the front edge of TCV to create advanced chips.

TSI said most customers have received notification of related events and are working closely with customers to communicate their wafer delivery time. Tjv will communicate detailed information with individual customers in the next few days.

When asked whether a customer (Apple) is on a large scale for the fall product release, whether there will be an impact on its terminal supply, Wei Zhejia said that the specific terminal is not convenient to disclose, but the more complex the production line is more difficult to recover, so it has an impact on the customer.

After the invasion of the TSMC virus, hackers and internal ghosts are widely circulated. However, Wei Zhe emphasized that the cause of the incident was human error, no internal ghost and hacker problem.

Theres no hacker problem. Its purely a software installation problem. If a machine gets infected with a virus, it can infect other machines. I do not think that there is a ghosts, a work of TGC is very strict, the installation of several tens of thousands of stations, the first event of such a surprise and shock, people can not always make mistakes, after the system automatic detection, will not happen again this kind of thing. There is no inner ghost, no hacker. Wei Zhejia said. Wei Zhes home in the press conference is not willing to open the new platform suppliers, said that the present delay in delivery as much as possible to reduce the impact of customers is the direction, the claim is not the plan of TZM, I do not think that people customized for the virus for TZM. Wei Zhejia said that the past security process is human operation, the future will adopt automatic system, new machine system does not do network prevention processing is not a way to access the network. Virus intrusion is a test for TSMCs new team. Wei Zhejia said he was satisfied with the companys handling of the incident. He has been keeping company with Zhang Zhongmou, founder of the company.
