Apple employees’ personal information was stolen by a hacker in Australia. Surprisingly, this hacker was not sentenced to prison.
Personal information of Apple employees shared on Twitter
Apple is implementing a special reward system for those who find security in their system. However, some hackers can go too far to find this vulnerability.
A 24-year-old hacker named Abe Crannaford in Australia tried to hack Apple. The hacker, who tried to access the company’s confidential data twice, was unsuccessful and detected. In the trial by the Erden Local Court, the hacker was fined $3,400. The sentence of any prison sentence should not be tried for the same crime for 18 months.
It has also been reported that Crannaford’s Apple employees have confiscated their personal information. Also, sharing this personal information on Twitter and having links on Apple’s software on GitHub could have left Crannaford in a more difficult situation. For this type of crime, 13,600 dollars of money and two years’ imprisonment can be imposed at the local court. The judge who made the decision also stated that Apple’s reward system could cause such problems.
