Australian teen breaks into Apple database under the name "Hacky hack hack"
It shouldn't be that easy
The young Aussie managed to downloaded 90gb of secure files as well as access customer accounts. The 16-year-old got caught because he digitally hid the instructions and sensitive Apple files in a folder. What did he name the folder you ask? “hacky hack hack.”
Apple responded to the incident in a statement to Reuters, saying, “We… want to assure our customers that at no point during this incident was their personal data compromised.”
The young boy now faces criminal charges and had a hearing at Australia's children's court. His defense lawyer argued that his actions were purely motivated because “he was such a fan of the company.”
