General Electric is investigating claims that a threat actor breached the company's development environment in a cyberattack and leaked allegedly stolen data.
General Electric (GE) is an American multinational company with divisions in power, renewable energy, and aerospace industries.
Earlier this month, a threat actor named IntelBroker attempted to sell access to General Electric's "development and software pipelines" for $500 on a hacking forum.
After not selling said alleged access, the threat actor posted again that they are now selling both the network access and allegedly stolen data.
"I previously listed the access to General Electrics, however, no serious buyers have actually responded to me or followed up. I am now selling the entire thing here separately, including access (SSH, SVN etc)," the threat actor posted to a hacking forum.
"Data includes a lot of DARPA-related military information, files, SQL files, documents etc."
