In what comes as an addition to the string of high-profile hacks, is the security breach that has hit the iPad manufacturer, early today. Hacking group, AntiSec – formed out of the union of former group, Lulz Security and Anonymous, claimed responsibility for the breach.
AntiSec claims that it gained advantage over a security flaw in a software used by Apple. However, AntiSec also stated that the hack attempt wasn’t a full-fledged one, and was just done to expose Apple’s flawed security system, and that Apple is a ‘later target’. Wall Street Journal reports that, the hack outfit put up a release revealing around 26 administrative usernames and passwords.
