The company confirmed no data was taken in the hack carried out by a teenager.
Yesterday, it was reported that Apple's servers were hacked into by an Australian teenager, who managed to download 90GB of files.
Today, Apple has confirmed, in a letter to the press, that no personal customer data was take or exposed in that hack. The exact reason how the teen got into the servers is unknown.
Apple said the following in a statement:
An Apple spokesman said the company’s information security personnel “discovered the unauthorized access, contained it, and reported the incident to law enforcement” without commenting further on the specifics of the case. “We … want to assure our customers that at no point during this incident was their personal data compromised,” the spokesman said.
The teenager pleaded guilty in the court and is due to be sentenced in September. Apple takes security extremely seriously, and will obviously be upping it's procedures put in place to guard users' data. We will not be seeing a story like this again for a while.
