Technology Inceptions

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC), one of world’s largest chipmaker’s set to shut down its operation in several of its factories after being hit by a computer virus.


While TSMC has been subject to virus attacks before, this is the first time it had to shut down production because of it. The company hasn’t disclosed which of its sites were affected or if any of them were involved with the manufacturing of Apple’s chipset.
