Quanta confirms cyberattack, denies impact on business

Taipei, April 21 (CNA) Taiwan-based Quanta Computer Inc., one of the world's largest notebook computer ODM service providers, on Wednesday confirmed that it has recently been subject to a cyberattack, but stressed that there has been no impact on the company's operations.

"Quanta Computer's information security team has worked with external IT experts in response to cyberattacks on a small number of Quanta servers," a statement issued by the company said.

"We've reported to and have maintained seamless communications with the relevant law enforcement and data protection authorities concerning recent abnormal activities. There has been no material impact on the company's business operations," it added.

Quanta's statement came after foreign media reported a day earlier that the leading notebook manufacturer and one of Apple's business partners, was asked by the infamous ransomware gang REvil to pay ransom money after they allegedly stole "a lot of confidential data" from Quanta's network, including Apple product blueprints.

Quanta, however, refused to communicate with the ransomware gang or pay the US$100 million ransom demand, according to a report released online by the Bleeping Computer technology news site.

Quanta is the latest target on a list of Taiwanese technology companies, including Acer Inc., one of Taiwan's leading PC brands, and contract notebook maker, Compal Electronics Inc., that have been attacked by ransomware in recent months.

In response, opposition Taiwan People's Party Legislator Kao Hung-an, former vice president of Foxconn's Industrial Big Data Office, called on Wednesday for the Taiwanese government to come up with concrete plans to help Taiwanese high-tech companies combat cyberattacks.

Kao said the attacks show that most Taiwanese companies have a serious lack of experts in the cybersecurity field.

These attacks are causing tremendous losses for local enterprises, including leakage of customers' private information and creating an overall crisis in Taiwan's world-renowned high-tech industry, Kao said, adding that the government should come up with a defensive strategy as soon as possible.
