AMD Investigates Data Breach

AMD Investigates Data Breach

After a threat actor posted purportedly stolen material for sale on a hacker forum, claiming it contained confidential information, financial papers, and employee details of AMD, AMD is looking into whether it was the target of a cyberattack.

AMD released a statement to BleepingComputer stating, “We are aware of a cybercriminal organization claiming to be in possession of stolen AMD data.”

“We are working closely with law enforcement officials and a third-party hosting partner to investigate the claim and the significance of the data.”

IntelBroker has shared some screenshots of the stolen material, which include AMD workers’ internal phone numbers and corporate email addresses, to lend legitimacy to the attack. However, the employee data displayed in each instance is marked as “inactive,” indicating that the employees are no longer employed by the business and that the emails are no longer valid.

The most well-known incident with IntelBroker was the DC Health Link breach, which resulted in a congressional investigation and the exposure of members’ and staff members’ personal information.

The hack of the Europol Platform for Experts (EPE), a website that facilitates information exchange between foreign law enforcement organizations, was more recently caused by IntelBroker.

AMD also looked into an extortion group called RansomHouse in June 2022, claiming to have taken 450GB of data.
