UM – forget the Arizona police and the music industry, Apple is the new target of the hacking movement #AntiSec. Hackers loosely allied with hacker groups LulzSec and Anonymous have thieved some data from Apple – the names and passwords of users in their business intelligence unit, according
But why Apple?
I mean, we see their problems with the Arizona police, but the attack on Apple is interesting one, cos they’re a well-loved Tech Brand. Okay, we’re not shocked – obviously LulzSec’s big hack was the Sony PSP one.But still, it’s interesting.
Anonymous‘s stated aims are to provide “access to information and a venue to publish it”. But Anti-Sec’s are much more broad and general “Hack everyone you can and then hack some more”.
Could it be they got annoyed by the same things that pissed off our resident brand expert Laura the other day? See – Is Apple losing its cool? Why the ban on live gig recording could be one step too far
Are you a member of AntiSec? Care to leave a comment explaining yourselves? We’d love to receive one.
