AMD Blog Site Hacked

Advanced Micro Devices is the latest major company to be victimized by hackers, shutting down its blog site Aug. 19 after a group calling itself r00tbeer apparently defaced the site and stole a database containing information of AMD staff.

The attackers reportedly announced the hack on its Twitter account after putting their logo and a link to the Twitter account on the site.
