    Hacker says that if there is no buyer for the rest of the code, then she will "just leak everything".

    surely this is not going to end well for them? you've presumably really got to know what you're doing to expect financial transactions not to be traceable particularly when the law get involved.

    I'd presumed in US as they found the stuff on a computer, but then I guess a hacker finds stuff on computers remotely so yeah that makes more sense they'd be elsewhere. hang on, $100m dollars you say? I think I might know who's behind this:

    100 mil crikey! They'll be mercs coming forward now offering their services for 100th of that to take care of this hacker. Those mercs in Sierra Leone would sell their own grandmother for a beer. I wouldn't have advertised the price. Private negotiation best practice

    Re: AMD responds to Navi GPU source code packet leak

    well if the money get paid in crime money ( bitcoin ) then if the thief sit on it until that crap balloon again it will be 200 million.

    Dont know about you guys, but i have never, and i don't know any who have ever paid for something with bitcoin, every time i hear about that is in relation to crime.
    So i don't understand how they can still endorse this.

    Re: AMD responds to Navi GPU source code packet leak

    Who would/could actually pay $100m? It's only the big players with that kind of ready cash and they would be shafted if it ever came out that they did. Maybe some second or third tier Chinese manufacturer, but are they likely to have the cash?

    No-one. If they asked for 10 grand they might be in with a chance.

    If you want to mess up a competitor, given them your design specs and code. Any time they spend trying to reverse engineer and understand your code is time they aren't doing what they should be doing, developing their own technology, slowing them down.

    Don't pay up, and yes AMD can easy pay up 100m, but uh... just don't do anything

    Re: AMD responds to Navi GPU source code packet leak

    So the right response from Intel and Nvidia is to say that even if the code was released, they wouldn't look at it, thus rendering the value of the data to near zero and removing any incentive for hackers to target the rest of the industry. (You can forget about pretending it's not in the hands of malicious actors already so there's no value paying to avoid that either)

    Re: AMD responds to Navi GPU source code packet leak

    Maybe the hacker deliberately set the price at $100m knowing no one would pay up and so they can 'justify' releasing the code, which was their intention anyway. This method just gets them more publicity by making an outrageous demand.

    "She"....?
    ISTR that Nvidia boss Jen-Hsun Huang has a niece, who is boss of AMD.

    Coincidence?
    Conspiracy?
    Inside job?
    Italian Job?

    if the code leaks, then it will be more mods, and they will need to pay more attention to security. Win for the customers....
