AMD investigating data breach after stolen data appears on the dark web

A hacker called IntelBroker is claiming he stole an unknown quantity of confidential data from AMD. The Santa Clara-based tech company AMD is investigating the claims of the threat actor.

In a post on BreachForums, an infamous hacker’s forum on the dark web, IntelBroker says he is selling compromised data from AMD he obtained earlier this month.

Allegedly, he stole data about future products, specification sheets, property files, ROMs, source code, firmware and finances.

He also claims that the data breach contains an employee and customer database, including personal information from employees such as names, job functions, user IDs, business phone numbers, corporate email addresses and employment status.

To prove his claims, IntelBroker posted screenshots of the supposedly stolen data on the dark web for people to download.

This is what we know about IntelBroker

In a statement to BleepingComputer, AMD says it’s aware that the threat actor might have stolen confidential information. A spokesperson states that the company is working closely with law enforcement and a third-party hosting partner to investigate the claim and the significance of the data.

IntelBroker is a well-known hacker, probably best-known for the data breach at DC Health Link in March 2023. DC Health Link is an organization that administers the health care plans of U.S. House members, staff and their families. Personal information of roughly 170,000 individuals were stolen.

Other data breaches linked to IntelBroker are the ones on Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), Home Depot and the Europol Expert Platform (EPE).
