Hacker stole and leaked Xbox Series X graphics source code

AMD has been having a very rough few months. According to the Xbox Series X chip designer, a hacker stole the new consoles test files. These files were for the new Xbox console’s graphics hardware. Thus, some of the information had been posted online before being taken down promptly. Although AMD is being quite shy on the details as of right now, the claimed intruder had something to say to TorrentFreak.

The material leaked had source codes for the Navi 10, the new future Navi 21, and the Arden GPU. All of these are in the supposedly in the new Xbox Series X, according to the culprit claiming to be responsible. The self-proclaimed culprit has also made demands for $100 million for all of the source code they claim to have. If they don’t get a buyer, they would then leak everything. Reportedly, the hacker claimed to find the information in a hacked terminal back in November. Although, according to AMD, it hadn’t been approached until December.

AMD doesn’t seem to be bowing down to the pressure. The company believes that the information that had been taken wasn’t cored to the security or competitiveness of their product. They also stated that the investigation into this was still ongoing.
This slight hiccup shouldn’t affect the launch window for Microsoft’s new Xbox, although leaks do suggest a lack of security.
