1. AMD Investigating Breach Claims After Hacker Offers to Sell Data

The hacker known as IntelBroker announced on the BreachForums cybercrime forum that he sells the AMD.com data breach. The data offered for sale allegedly includes information on future AMD products, customer and employee databases, datasheets, source code, property files, firmware, and financial documents. The employee database allegedly includes information such as name, job role, phone number, and email address. This information could jeopardize AMD’s competitive edge and thus the breach raises concerns about intellectual property theft and corporate espionage. AMD’s statement suggests that the data, if authentic, could originate from a third-party hosting provider rather than directly from the chipmaker’s own systems.
