Acer India website hacked

Acer India’s website acer.co.in has been hacked by a  Turkish Hacker Group, Maxney. The site has been defaced and is facing a massive leakage of data. Over 20000 user credentials and information in the XLS format has been claimed to be leaked and put up on Rapidshare as a 41MB compressed file. The data appears to be a complete server extraction within two folders, says the source.

The defacement appears to a protest against the Israeli actions.

The defacement was not a complete index rewrite, but more so a add-on which has effected the following websites:

  • http://acn.acer.co.in/index.html
  • http://adn.acer.co.in/index.html
  • http://aln.acer.co.in/index.html
  • http://asn.acer.co.in/index.html
  • http://humanet.acer.co.in/index.html
  • http://select.acer.co.in/index.html
  • Etc.

Acer India is now aware of the hack and has taken the site down. At the time of writing, the website is still offline.
