A Twitter user posted a repository link containing around 20 GB of Intel copyright (IP), including source code, processor production documentation, and more.
The violation was allegedly committed earlier this year by an anonymous person.
The tweet states that the information in the hands of the hacker from the breach is extremely confidential and is subject to non-disclosure agreements (NDA). The published contains a list of violated data, adding that "the best and most secret" will be published in the future.
The contents of the list include the "Kaby Lake BIOS Reference Code, Intel Camera Drivers Binaries for SpaceX" and more.
There is also information about future generations of processors, which could be harmful if the code falls into the wrong hands.
Although the data and files mentioned above may not make sense to most users, they could be used by malicious users to detect potential vulnerabilities.
Having the opportunity to read the source code they could develop malware that exploits any potential security vulnerabilities.
As for the company's security policies, read the following message:
If you find password protected zips in the release the password is probably either "Intel123" or "intel123". This was not set by me or my source, this is how it was aquired Intel from.
We added the tweet that contains the links to the repository but you better not visit it.
