Computer Maker Acer Reports Online Data Breach
Acer said the “security issue” involved customers who used its site between May 12, 2015, and April 28, 2016. The company does not collect Social Security numbers, and “we have not identified evidence indicating that password or login credentials were affected,” Acer said.
Acer reportedly informed nearly 35,000 customers in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico that they might have been victims of the breach. The company gave no further details about what may have caused the breach but said it has informed its credit card processor and law enforcement.
