Acer’s cyber security defences have been breached by a hacker who claims to have stolen confidential data from the PC maker, including files on the company’s products.
The culprit is now selling access to the stolen files on a forum frequented by hackers. “The leak contains a total 160GB of 655 directories, and 2,869 files,” the attacker wrote in the post.
Allegedly, the stolen data includes confidential presentations, product model documentation, and data about the BIOS system used on Acer computers. On the forum, the hacker also posted samples of some of the stolen files.
