INCIDENT: Acer Hit in Cyber Attack

After attackers infiltrated Acer’s servers in India, the company’s Taiwan office fell victim to a breach this past weekend.
On October 16, Desorden hackers said they obtained login details belonging to employees of Acer’s Taiwanese branch. That came three days after the attack group breached Acer India’s servers. The attack group apparently found vulnerabilities on Acer’s Malaysian and Indonesian network as well, according to a report with Privacy Affairs.
