Australian teenager who claimed to be a big Apple fan and dreaming of working for the company, managed to hack the company's safe severs.
An Australian teenager's hacking skills that he used to repeatedly break into Apple's secure systems has landed on the other side of the law. What is also sensational about the matter is that the school's children's online antics remain undetected for over a year, until Apple discovered the unauthorized intrusions and blocked him later.
The teenager whose real name is held for legitimate reasons had also gotten infamous in the hacking community all over the world thanks to its superior hacking capabilities. In fact, it is so known that the boy has grown to be that only revealing all aspects of the matter will be enough to reveal his identity. That's also the reason why the boy's real name along with his other credentials is kept under cover to save him from unnecessary dangers.
But what has complicated the matter, even more, is that the teenager also downloaded 90 GB worth of secure files, as well as involving customer listings. Interestingly, the youth has spared all of its hacking details, including instructions in a folder called "hacky hack hack" on its Apple laptop. However, Apple managed to detect its illegal ventures and continued to block him. The company also came into contact with the FBI to spy the sinner.
The case was finally transferred to the Australian federal police who had conducted a raid at the child's suburban home in Australia. The raid revealed incriminating evidence, including a large amount of hacked info and other details that proved enough to initiate the case against the boy.
Two laptops were also restored and seized, illuminated officials. The IP address used to hack was also consistent with those who had invaded Apple's security systems. It's not all that even the serial numbers of the devices match those who had hacked into Apple's secure servers. Among the other seized systems is a mobile phone and a hard drive.

However, it can still not be enough to save the child from the law clusters, given how serious Apple is when it comes to protecting the privacy of its customers.
