Apple So, Anonymous, under the guise of its AntiSec campaign, has hacked an Apple server, got access to 27 administrator usernames and passwords, and put them on Pastebin. Is it time to panic? Is it time to point and laugh at Apple? Is it time to stop using iTunes? Not really - this is a small hack that will cause little to no damage.

While this caused little to no damage, they did get in. It isn't like Apple has the best security record for their OS. Time for Apple to start an audit. Make sure to tighten down the hatches.


Even so the thing I think people ignore is the fact that the heavy lifting within Apple isn't done by Apple's own products; they have a mixture of Windows, AIX, Solaris, Linux and a few other OS's for good measure so it would be interesting to see what system was affected by the hack.

You are correct though when it comes to the security record which will come under even more scrutiny with the launch of iCloud and people wondering whether Apple is on top of their security game enough as to trust them with sensitive information.
