Back in June 2022, AMD encountered a similar hack from extortion group, RansomHouse, who claimed to have stolen 450 Gb worth of data. NVIDIA was also hacked by a similar group known as Lapsus$ back in 2022 and the details of several next-generation GPUs were leaked out such as Blackwell which was officially revealed by the firm this year at GTC 2024. Other leaked data that was part of the hack included DLSS & LHR source codes. The group was also involved in a leak around Rockstar’s GTA 6 but was reportedly apprehended by law enforcement agencies though the group remains active.

A sample of the leaked data has been posted online at the Breach Forums, however, we will wait for AMD’s response on the matter to know the exact extent of this hack.
