It was recently revealed that a while ago, Apple’s corporate network had been hacked by a teen based in Melbourne, Australia. The reports claim that the teen had managed to download almost 90GB worth of secure files and also access customer accounts, which we’re sure many are now worried about that information potentially being exposed.

However according to a statement Apple has since released to The Guardian (via MacRumors), the company is reassuring users that no personal data had been compromised during the hack. “At Apple, we vigilantly protect our networks and have dedicated teams of information security professionals that work to detect and respond to threats.”

“In this case, our teams discovered the unauthorized access, contained it, and reported the incident to law enforcement. We regard the data security of our users as one of our greatest responsibilities and want to assure our customers that at no point during this incident was their personal data compromised.”

In the original report, it seems that the teen had apparently “dream of” working for Apple. The hack also occurred over a year ago where Apple had sought out the help of the FBI when they noticed the unauthorized access. Details of the hack were not shared, but apparently the teen had a method of accessing the servers that “worked flawlessly”.
