Acer hacked twice in a week by the same threat actor

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.

They also shared images of an internal Acer Taiwan portal and CSV files containing login credentials for Acer employees.
