Joven de 16 años logró hackear los servidores de Apple

  • Un adolescente australiano hackea la red de Apple y roba 90 gigas de datos

El joven, que vive en la ciudad de Melbourne, ingresó en la red de la compañía y descargó sus archivos a lo largo de un año.

El abogado del muchacho, cuya identidad no fue revelada al tratarse de un menor de edad, aseguró que el joven actuó de esta manera "por amor a la compañía". Si bien la compañía de Cupertino aceptó el hecho, no informó de forma precisa qué tipo de datos habían sido extraídos, por lo que algunos comenzaron a temer que la información personal de los usuarios estuviera en riesgo.

Según lo revelado por el propio hacker durante los interrogatorios, su sueño de trabajar algún día en Apple fue la principal motivación que lo llevó a realizar estos actos. En el allanamiento se hallaron dichas laptops, equipos móviles y un disco con una carpeta que llevaba por título "hacky hack hack", en donde se alojaba la información sustraída del servidor de Apple.

La seguridad de Apple encontró mediante la IP dos Macs que utilizó el jóven con los accesos no autorizados, lo que sirvió para que la Policía Federal de Australia consiguiera la orden de cateo, y arrestarlo.

Apple niega que se hayan visto comprometidos los datos sensibles de sus usuarios.

El adolescente se ha declarado culpable de los cargos y está a la espera de la sentencia, que se dictará el mes de septiembre. Consideramos que la seguridad de los datos de nuestros usuarios es una de nuestras mayores responsabilidades y queremos asegurarles a nuestros clientes que en ningún momento durante este incidente se vieron comprometidos sus datos personales.

Más recientemente, el grupo de piratas informáticos Turkish Crime Family amenazó con borrar los datos de millones de cuentas de iCloud si Apple no les pagaba 75.000 dólares en criptomonedas.
