They follow cyber attacks and this time it was about to suffer Acer , the technology mark specialized in the sale of computers and computer products. It happens that a group of hackers managed to steal more than 60GB of personal information from its customers, and not only that, but they are also willing to sell it to the highest bidder.
According to the journal Hindustan Times , the hacker group responsible for this act is called disorder, and they were who infiltrated the servers of Acer located in India. Among the stolen information we have personal, corporate data and also confidential data related to accounts, finance and more.
Additionally, a spokesman for Acer stated that they were already in contact with all the customers affected by this security gap, as well as with the local authorities of India to give with those responsible. Interestingly, this would not be the first time the company suffers from a cyber attack in the last year, because just a few months ago, Acer was infected with a ransomware and those responsible demanded $ 50 million to unlock the equipment.
Something similar occurred with razer last year and here you can read more details about it.
Editor s note: Maybe it s just me, but I feel that lately we have had more news related to some hack or safety gap than before. Apparently, cyber security had already reached extremely high levels, but it seems that hackers keep finding ways to pass over it.
