(Reuters) -Advanced Micro Devices said on Tuesday it was looking into claims that the company's data was stolen in a hack by a cybercriminal organization.

"We are working closely with law enforcement officials and a third-party hosting partner to investigate the claim and the significance of the data," the chipmaker said in a statement.

According to media reports, an organization called "Intelbroker" conducted a breach of AMD's data.

The breach covers a vast variety of sensitive information, including data on future products, customer databases and financial records, among others, the reports said.

Shares of AMD were marginally down in extended trading.
