Acer has suffered a second cyberattack in just a week by the same hacking group that says other regions are vulnerable.
Last week, threat actors known as 'Desorden' emailed journalists to say they hacked Acer India's servers and stole data, including customer information.
Acer later confirmed the breach but stated it was an "isolated attack," affecting only their after-sales service systems in India.
Less than a week later, Desorden emailed BleepingComputer to say they breached Acer Taiwan's servers on October 15th and stole employee and product information.
They also shared images of an internal Acer Taiwan portal and CSV files containing login credentials for Acer employees.
The threat actors told BleepingComputer that they performed the attack to prove that Acer is still vulnerable.
In addition to these two breaches, Acer suffered another cyberattack in March 2021 after the REvil ransomware gang encrypted their network and demanded a $50 million ransom.
