Chip maker giant AMD investigates a data breach

AMD announced an investigation after a threat actor attempted to sell data allegedly stolen from its systems.

AMD has launched an investigation after the threat actor IntelBroker announced they were selling sensitive data allegedly belonging to the company.

“We are aware of a cybercriminal organization claiming to be in possession of stolen AMD data,” the chip maker told media outlets. “We are working closely with law enforcement officials and a third-party hosting partner to investigate the claim and the significance of the data.”

Earlier this week IntelBroker announced on the BreachForums cybercrime forum that they were “selling the data breach.”

The seller states that the files were stolen in June 2024.

The allegedly stolen data includes information on future products, datasheets, employee and customer databases, property files, firmware, source code, and financial documentation.

The seller claims compromised employee data includes first and last names, job functions, business phone numbers, email addresses, and status. 

It’s unclear if the data is authentic and which it the source.

IntelBroker recently made the headlines because he attempted to sell data from Europol and Zscaler.
