About IntelBroker Hacker

While Home Depot’s customer base remains unaffected, IntelBroker has recently made headlines for its focus on high-profile targets in the United States. Their most recent alleged cyberattacks include breaching Acuity, Inc., a Federal contractor based in Reston, Virginia, and stealing highly sensitive data from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Initially denied by the US government, the data breach was acknowledged ( but yet not verified) on April 3, 2024, when the IntelBroker hacker leaked the entire dataset to verify its authenticity. Consequently, the US Department of Justice has initiated an investigation into the matter.

As for who IntelBroker is, the hacker’s identity and associations remain undisclosed; nevertheless, the United States government has implicated IntelBroker as the alleged culprit in one of the T-Mobile data breaches.

Furthermore, IntelBroker has a history of targeting prominent entities within the United States, with previous breaches affecting institutions such as Los Angeles International Airport, US Department of Defense documents, staffing firm Robert Half, Facebook Marketplace’s database, General Electric’s DARPA-related accesses, Weee! Grocery, and various others.
