Australian courts were told that the private schoolboy from Melbourne, who started his activities at the age of 16, developed custom software tools to bypass Apple's security measures and hide his identity.
According to statements from his lawyer, the teen managed to download a bunch of large internal files and accessed customer accounts. The biggest issue it has had to face was a 2014 incident in which hackers released nude celebrity images found on 50 iCloud accounts.
The story became more interesting when it was found that he saved all the instructions for hacking and the hacked data in a folder named "hacky hack hack". However, one Australian teenager chose to show he was a big fan of Apple by repeatedly breaking into the company's servers and stealing data. Apple detected the breach and told the FBI, which informed the Australian Federal Police, making it an global case.
The teen's defence lawyer said his client had become so well known in the worldwide hacking community that even mentioning the case in detail could expose him to risk.
A prosecutor told the court: "A mobile phone and hard drive were also seized and the IP address... matched the intrusions into the organisation".
An AFP raid on the boy's home revealed two laptops with serial numbers matching those of devices which had accessed the system. The teenager reportedly used WhatsApp to send these keys to others.
"The objective was to connect remotely to the company's internal systems". He pleaded guilty in court and now awaits sentencing... and Apple should probably follow up with a job offer. When his computers were seized, they were identified as the same machines that had accessed Apple's network, according to the report.
