Intel reports hack of website

BOSTON (AP) — Computer chipmaker Intel Corp. says it is investigating a reported hack of its corporate website that prompted it to release a quarterly earnings report early. The company’s chief financial officer, George Davis, told The Financial Times that Intel published its earnings ahead of the stock market’s close on Thursday because it believed a hacker stole financially sensitive information from the site. A company statement said a graphic from Intel’s earnings material may have been taken. Such information could benefit stock traders. Intel had no comment beyond a Thursday statement in which it said it is investigating reports of “non-authorized access” to its earnings material.
