A Teenage Boy from Melbourne Hacks into Apple’s Mainframe.

A 16-year-old boy, who aspired to work for the US giant, Apple, hacked into its mainframe system from his suburban home in Melbourne, Australia.


As per what the spokesman of the Apple Company said, the information security personnel had realized the illegal access and had reported the incident to the law enforcement. He also made a statement where he assured the customers that their personal data was still safe with the company. The specific details of the case were not mentioned. The boy was inclined towards bragging about his actions on the instant messaging application, WhatsApp.


The court’s spokesperson said that the 16-year-old boy would be sentenced on 20th September and when asked to comment further, the spokesperson refused. The AFP too rebuffed the request for a statement.
