Computer-Hacking Group LulzSec Targets Apple In Latest Attack

Apple, the company behind the Macs and iPhones, have recently been the target of AntiSec (Anti-Security), a hacking campaign composed of hackers from the group Anonymous and Lulz Security. The group of hackers claim to have recovered 26 usernames and passwords that belong to administrators of Apple. Hackers claim to have broken into Apple’s systems before posting a list of names and password hashes online.

The hackers said in a statement posted to Twitter that they had accessed Apple's systems due to a security flaw used in software used by the Cupertino, Calif.-based gadget maker and other companies. "But don't worry," the hackers said, "we are busy elsewhere."

A spokesman for Apple didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
