Hackers Attack Foxconn to Protest Working Conditions, Leak Employee Usernames and Passwords

Hackers Attack Foxconn to Protest Working Conditions, Leak Employee Usernames and Passwords

Apple manufacturing partner Foxconn has been attacked by hackers in protest of harsh working conditions. The attack has seen employee usernames and passwords posted online to Pirate Bay for anyone to download, Forbes reports.

The hacker group responsible, calling itself Swagg Security, announced that it had penetrated Foxconn’s network to obtain the data.

“Foxconn did have an appropriate firewall, but fortunately to our intent, we were able to bypass it almost flawlessly,” the group bragged in a note posted on the Pirate Bay alongide its release. “…With several hacking techniques employed, and a couple of days in time, we were able to dump most of everything of significance. We now appropriately give consent to other individuals reading this release, to scavenge through the leaks acquiring usernames and passwords; while attempting to find if they use the passwords anywhere else. Remember damage is bliss.”

Foxconn is not only Apple’s main supplier, but also works with Dell, IBM, Hewlett-Packard, Motoroloa, Cisco and Nokia, and with the username of CEO Terry Gou also reportedly taken, this could potentially have a big impact on their relationship with the companies they supply.
