HPE investigates new breach after data for sale on hacking forum

Hewlett Packard Enterprise is investigating a potential new breach after a threat actor put allegedly stolen data up for sale on a hacking forum, claiming it contains HPE credentials and other sensitive information.

IntelBroker, the threat actor selling the alleged HPE data, shared screenshots of some of the supposedly stolen HPE credentials but has yet to disclose the source of the information or the method used to obtain it.

The company said the Russian hackers stole SharePoint files and data from its cybersecurity team and other departments and maintained access to its cloud infrastructure until December when HPE was again alerted of a breach of its cloud-based email environment.

“On December 12, 2023, HPE was notified that a suspected nation-state actor had gained unauthorized access to the company’s Office 365 email environment. HPE immediately activated cyber response protocols to begin an investigation, remediate the incident, and eradicate the activity,” HPE told BleepingComputer.

More recently, HPE disclosed in 2021 that data repositories of its Aruba Central network monitoring platform were compromised, enabling attackers to access data about monitored devices and their locations.

Europcar denies data breach of 50 million users, says data is fake.
