AMD Investigates Data Breach After Hackers Offer Data for Sale


AMD is checking if it was hacked after a cybercriminal tried to sell supposedly stolen data on a hacking forum. The hacker claims the data includes AMD employee info, financial documents, and confidential information.

“We know a cybercriminal group claims to have stolen AMD data,” AMD told BleepingComputer.

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

A hacker named IntelBroker shared screenshots of some stolen AMD credentials but hasn’t revealed the price or how they got the data.

“Today, I’m selling the data breach. Thanks for reading and enjoy!” IntelBroker posted on a hacking forum.

“In June 2024, AMD, a large computing company, was hacked. Stolen data includes future AMD products, spec sheets, employee and customer databases, property files, ROMs, source code, firmware, and financial information.”

According to DarkWebInformer, the hacker said the stolen data also has an employee database with user IDs, names, job functions, business phone numbers, email addresses, and employment status.

IntelBroker is known for hacking DC Health Link, which exposed personal data of U.S. House members and staff, leading to a congressional hearing.

More recently, IntelBroker hacked the Europol Platform for Experts (EPE), a web portal for sharing information between international law enforcement agencies.

In June 2022, AMD also investigated a breach by the RansomHouse gang, who claimed to have stolen 450GB of data.
