The Internet vigilante hacker group Anonymous claimed to have broken into an Apple server and published a small number of usernames and passwords for one of the U.S. technology company’s websites. Anonymous said on Sunday via its account on microblogging site Twitter that Apple could be a target for hackers and released the data as part of its Anti Security, or “AntiSec,” campaign. “Not being so serious, but well … Apple could be target, too. But don’t worry, we are busy elsewhere,” Anonymous said on its Twitter feed, where it shared a link to the data posted on text-sharing website Pastebin.
Anonymous said the data included 27 usernames and passwords for the http://www.abs.apple.com website. The website, used by Apple for online surveys, on Monday displayed an error message that said the server was temporarily offline. A spokesman for Apple declined to comment.
