A computer virus infected several fabrication tools and halted operations at Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. Ltd.’s factories on Aug. 3, Bloomberg reported. The chipmaker said its factories are unlikely to resume production until Aug. 5. The virus was not introduced by a hacker, the chipmaker added. Taiwan Semiconductor manufactures chips for Apple Inc. and Qualcomm Inc. and is the sole maker of the iPhone’s main processor.
