Nestlé says it leaked its own test data, not Anonymous

Nestlé has denied claims that hacking group Anonymous have published sensitive information they hacked from the company. ‘The data is not real or sensitive, wasn’t stolen, and was accidentally leaked by itself via one of its own websites.’ Nestlé told The Register.

Nestlé explained the breach is the result of a February incident, ‘when some randomized and predominantly publicly available test data of a B2B nature was unintentionally made accessible online for a short period of time on a single business test website.’

The denial comes after Anonymous claimed that it had leaked 10 GB of data belonging to Nestlé as part of its actions against Western companies that are still operating in Russia.
