Anonymous targets Apple, releases data

The hacking collective Anonymous claims to have broken into an Apple server and has published a small number of usernames and passwords online. Reuters reports that the group said via Twitter that “Apple could be [a] target, too,” but reassured users by saying “we are busy elsewhere.” Included in the message was a link to 27 usernames and passwords supposedly taken from the abs.apple.com website, which is used for online surveys. It is unclear whether the group has planned any attacks on more significant Apple services, such as iTunes or MobileMe.
