Apple | Oct 2, 2018 | Master3395

The attacks are described as serious and sophisticated.

The Australian teenager declared guilty of hacking Apple. He was 16 years old when the attacks took place and together with a younger boy they should have retrieved around 1TB of data from the iPhone manufacturer's servers.

Hacked Apple
In a children's court in Australia, the teenager was sentenced to eight months of probation. The attacks are described by the court as "serious, persistent and sophisticated."

The actor stated that the two individuals had "modified and copied a high volume of data that was sensitive both in terms of privacy and from a commercial point of view," blames Bloomberg.

Could not access the customer's personal data
Apple says in an email statement that the customer's personal data was not affected by the attacks.

"In this case, our group became aware of unauthorized access, stopped it and contacted the police," the company writes in an email to Bloomberg.
