Western Digital Hackers Release Leaked Images in Bold Taunt to Storage Giant
Hackers who successfully breached Western Digital’s systems in March 2023 have now published a series of screenshots, revealing internal emails and other company communications that allegedly demonstrate the storage giant’s inadequate response to the incident. The leaked images, discovered by cybersecurity researcher Dominic Alvieri, depict 29 screenshots capturing various aspects of WD’s actions following the breach.
While it is not confirmed whether the hackers still maintain access to WD’s systems and are taunting the company, it is important to note that the timeline of a data breach investigation and response typically involves a period of assessing the breach and securing the compromised systems. Therefore, there may have been a window of opportunity during which the hackers obtained these screenshots.
