Foxconn Hacked


Members of SwaggSec claim to have stolen login credentials from Chinese electronics manufacturer Foxconn.

"The incident comes in the wake of investigations of practices at Foxconn and other third party suppliers that make the components and assemble popular products like the iPhone and iPad," writes Threatpost's Paul Roberts.

"Among other things, the hackers exposed information that may have allowed outsiders to place fraudulent orders in the name of some of Foxconn's major customers," Roberts writes. "A copy of the stolen data was posted on the illegal file sharing website PirateBay."
