Data Breach at Acer
Computer behemoth, Acer, suffered a data breach in mid-February after attackers were able to get into a server hosting private documents used by repair technicians.
That being said, the Taiwan-based computer firm said so far there are no indications the hack had an impact on stealing customer data.
The company’s confirmation of the breach comes after the attacker began selling on a popular hacking forum what they claim is 160GB of data stolen from Acer in mid-February, according to a report with BleepingComputer. The attacker said the stolen data contains technical manuals, software tools, backend infrastructure details, product model documentation for phones, tablets, and laptops, BIOS images, ROM files, ISO files, and replacement digital product keys (RDPK).
