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.

Completely agree; there's an ancient law of the internet which seem to be forgotten nowadays: don't feed the trolls. Giving a news entry on a news site such as OSNews is definitely troll feeding.

Corporate insecurity doesn't go away if people stop speaking about it.

The Anonymous group provides a natural venue for highlighting corporate insecurity, albeit in a harmful way. I've never condoned what they do, but looking at this pragmatically, the world would not be safer with them out of the picture; eliminating this media driven group will not eliminate the crackers who operate underground out of the spotlight.


I ask this question in earnest: who should take corporations to task for poor security?
