Hackers Claim Data Breach at Staffing Giant Robert Half, Sell Sensitive Data

The hackers, infamously known as IntelBroker and Sanggiero, claim to possess a trove of data from Robert Half, which is being sold for $20,000 in Monero (XMR) cryptocurrency. In June 2022, Robert Half International Inc., a global staffing and business consulting service, filed a data breach notification with the Office of the Maine Attorney General. According to the notification, the company experienced a data breach in which hackers targeted more than 1,000 customers, successfully obtaining their names, addresses, social security numbers, and tax information. Now, Hackread.com can confirm that individuals operating under the aliases IntelBroker and Sanggiero are claiming responsibility for another breach at Robert Half International. They claim to have successfully breached the company once again, bragging about the theft of a substantial amount of data. The stolen data is currently being offered for sale on the notorious Breach Forums at the price of $20,000 in Monero (XMR) cryptocurrency. Notably, the data listing initially appeared on Thursday, February 8, 2024, and has remained active since then. The hackers claim that they breached RobertHalf.com on the same day, indicating that this alleged data breach is separate from the previous one in 2022. However, it remains uncertain whether these are the same hackers responsible for the earlier breach. Nevertheless, IntelBroker is already recognized for their high-profile and credible hacks, which include breaches of the Weee! Grocery, General Electric and the most recent data leak involving a partial Facebook Marketplace database. The Alleged Stolen Data The Alleged Stolen Data

Headquartered in Menlo Park, California, United States, and established in 1948, Robert Half International holds the distinction of being the world’s first and largest specialized talent solutions firm. With over 325 offices globally, spanning countries such as Australia, Brazil, the UAE, the UK, Germany, Japan, China, and Canada, the company presents a lucrative target for cybercriminals. In their post on Breach Forums, IntelBroker disclosed that they managed to gain access to confidential records, employee documents, customer information, and configuration settings related to services such as OpenAI and Twilio. The hackers additionally shared screenshots purportedly displaying the stolen data, Git repositories, and AWS-related system settings. One screenshot appears to reveal a client list, with companies listed under ‘Account Names,’ accompanied by full names, primary functional roles, titles, and phone numbers. The full scope of the breach and the number of affected individuals remain uncertain. Hackread.com has contacted Robert Half International Inc. for an official statement or clarification.
