Four engineers arrested for selling stolen Intel engineering samples

Posted on Tuesday, January 03 2012 @ 19:04:59 CET by

The Taiwanese Criminal Investigation Bureau announced it has arrested four engineers working for Intel's OEM partners. The four face five years of jailtime for selling stolen engineering samples, investigators found 178 sample processors at the suspects' homes, and they admitted to having sold over 500 engineering samples since 2009.
The Taiwan Criminal Investigation Bureau swooped on the four in Taoyuan for their role in selling engineering sample CPUs online for fun and profit. Speaking to the China Post, a Bureau spokesman said the gang of four were all engineers working for Intel's OEM manufacturers in Taiwan although he did not say which ones.

The Bureau had a nose around the suspects' houses last month and confiscated 178 sample CPUs, which were reportedly worth around $800,000.

The suspects admitted that they had sold over 500 engineering sample CPUs since 2009 during initial investigations.
