Intel investigates a leak of intellectual property from its customer and partner resource center. More than 20 gigabytes of source code and proprietary data from chipmaker Intel Corp. was dumped online by a third party hacker group, likely as a result of a data breach from earlier this year.
Most of the things mentioned in this breach have not been published anywhere else before and are classified as confidential, under Intel Restricted Secret and NDA.
Intel later confirmed the leak of the data—is publicly available on BitTorrent feeds. The data appears to be available from the Intel Resource and Design Center, which hosts an abundant amount of information for registered users who are typically Intel partners and customers. The information is provided to these users through the center under NDA.
