Teenager Breaks Into Apple System, Company Assures No Data Compromise

Apple assured its customers this week that no customer data was compromised after it was revealed that an Australian teen had been able to hack into the tech giant’s mainframe.

The 16 year old had apparently been able to break into the system numerous times and had downloaded over 90 GB of secure data. The Melbourne teenager also pleaded guilty to accessing customer accounts without exposing his identity.

The AFP raid on the boy’s home also produced two laptops, a mobile phone and a hard drive containing the files, including a folder called “hacky hack hack”. The teen hacker had also reportedly boasted about his deeds on WhatsApp.
