AMD has confirmed the theft of files relating to both its current and future graphics cards, and that it’s working with law enforcement as part of an ongoing criminal investigation. The files are “not core to the competitiveness or security of our graphics products,” the company said in a statement yesterday.

The thief contacted the firm in December 2019, and later uploaded some of the files to Github. In a DMCA takedown notice sent to GitHub, which was processed on Tuesday (March 24), AMD said the cache of files contained “intellectual property owned by and stolen from AMD,” and that “the only acceptable solution is that the entire repository be removed”. The files were removed from the site.
