Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) is currently addressing potential security concerns following claims made by a hacker known as IntelBroker, who has purportedly offered stolen HPE credentials and sensitive data for sale on a prominent hacking forum.

Investigation and Response:

Despite assertions from HPE that no concrete evidence of a breach has emerged and no ransom demands have been made, the company remains vigilant, actively investigating the situation to ensure the security of its systems and data. Adam R. Bauer, HPE’s Sr. Director for Global Communications, confirmed the ongoing investigation, stating, “We are aware of the claims and are investigating their veracity.” While HPE maintains that there has been no indication of intrusion or impact on its products or services, the investigation remains ongoing.

Allegations by IntelBroker:

IntelBroker, whose past breaches include incidents such as the one involving DC Health Link, has shared screenshots allegedly depicting stolen HPE credentials, raising concerns about potential vulnerabilities within HPE’s infrastructure.

Previous Breach Incidents:

This development comes in the wake of HPE’s recent disclosure regarding a breach of its Microsoft Office 365 email environment in May 2023, attributed to Russian hackers linked to the APT29 hacking group.

Clarifications by HPE:

Bauer clarified that the data purportedly offered for sale online originated from a test environment, reassuring stakeholders that there is no evidence of compromise in HPE’s production environments or customer data.


As HPE continues to investigate the situation, this incident serves as a stark reminder of the persistent threats faced by organizations in today’s digital landscape, underscoring the critical importance of robust cybersecurity measures and proactive risk mitigation strategies.
