With the Xbox Series X releasing later this year, Microsoft has gone above and beyond in keeping consumers informed on what its upcoming console has to offer. However, it seems that some sensitive information regarding the Series X’s graphics has fallen into the wrong hands.
According to a blog post by AMD, the company responsible for the Series X’s graphic tech, an unknown hacker contacted the company claiming to have obtained files regarding their current and upcoming graphics products. In another report by TorrentFreak, various bits of data were located within a hacked computer, which included AMD’s Arden GPU found within the Series X.
The hacker had posted segments of the stolen code on GitHub, which have since been taken down, and has threatened to post the remainder of the information online if a ransom of $100 Million is not received. AMD has already issued a DMCA takedown notice and has explained that this information does not affect “the competitiveness or security of our products.”
