INCIDENT: REvil Demands $50Million Ransomware from Acer Electronics

The Sodinokibi/REvil ransomware gang has reportedly infected Taiwanese multinational electronics corporation Acer and demanded a ransom of $50 million. Those responsible for the Sodinokibi ransomware strain announced on their data leaks website that they had breached the computer giant.

This was the largest ransom ask made to date—many more times higher than what the Conti gang wanted from IoT manufacturer Advantech in November 2020.
