Now, hackers target Apple Inc server
Washington: A group of computer hackers has posted a document online that contains usernames and passwords for an Apple Inc server.
The move is one among a series of earlier security breaches that had compromised government and corporate websites across the world, a news channel reports.
"AntiSec," a hacking campaign that includes hackers from both the online vigilante group Anonymous and hackers from the Lulz Security, posted a document containing a link to a supposed Apple server along with a list of 26 administrative usernames and passwords. AntiSec is Internet shorthand for "anti-security."
In their statement posted on Twitter, the hackers said that they got access to Apple`s systems because of a security flaw in the software that is used by the Cupertino-based gadget maker and other companies.
"But don`t worry, we are busy elsewhere," the hackers said.
The posted information is an outcome of a two-month campaign of the hackers, who targeted corporations like Sony Corp. and AT&T Inc, and government agencies such as the US Senate, the Central Intelligence Agency and the Arizona Department of Public Safety.
