Compal, the second-largest laptop manufacturer in the world, hit by ransomware

Catalin Cimpanu reports:

Compal, a Taiwanese electronics company that builds laptops for some of the world’s largest computer brands, suffered a ransomware attack over the weekend.

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.
