We are talking about the Taiwanese company Quanta Computer Inc, which produces computers for Apple and other major players. For example, HP, Facebook, Google, etc. According to the hackers, they infiltrated the system and stole blueprints for an unannounced MacBook with a detailed description of the “filling”. The documents were created last month. That is, we are definitely talking about a new laptop model.
By the time the presentation was over, the hackers had published 15 schemes and are now demanding a ransom from Apple in the amount of $ 50 million. If the company does not pay this amount by May 1, then REvil will continue to share the drawings of the device. Quanta has already officially confirmed the attack, but Apple has yet to comment on the situation.
By the way, the hackers deliberately waited for yesterday’s presentation, as they wanted to make sure that the new MacBook would not be shown there.
Recall that yesterday at the Spring Loaded event, Apple announced AirTags, an all-in-one iMac, an Apple TV 4K set-top box, an updated iPad Pro, a new Podcasts app, and a purple iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini.
