Apple server hack throws up username and password info

Share

rotten apple.JPGAnonymousIRC, the Twitter account used by formers members of the LulzSec and Anonymous hacking groups, have claimed that an Apple server’s security measures have been breached, revealing sensitive username and password information as part of the AntiSec hacking campaign.

A posting on a PasteBin page shows the list of information nabbed from the server hack.

Before you start running to the Apple store to berate their geniuses however, note that the server attacked was merely used to collect survey data from Apple’s Business Intelligence group. Your iTunes account details still remain safe.

Or at least for the time being. The Twitter account also revealed that Apple may also be a potential target for a more focussed and damaging attack in the future. “Not being so serious, but well, Apple could be target too. Don’t worry, we are busy elsewhere,” reads the Twitter post.

A Lebanese hacker going by the name idac_hacker also claims to have found security holes in Apple’s network defenses. He states however that he is not affiliated with LulzSec or Anonymous.

No comment from Apple has been issued yet.
