'Compal, a Taiwanese electronics company that builds laptops for some
of the world's largest computer brands, suffered a ransomware attack
over the weekend. From a report:
Responsible for the breach is believed to be the DoppelPaymer
ransomware gang, according to a screenshot of the ransom note shared
by Compal employees with Yahoo Taiwan reporters. According to
Taiwanese media, the incident was discovered on Sunday morning and is
believed to have impacted around 30% of Compal's computer fleet.
Employees arriving at work were greeted by a memo from Compal's IT
staff, asking workers to check the status of their workstations and
back up important files on systems that were not impacted.'
