Hacker group, Anonymous, scrapped Apple's survey site.

Last Sunday, performed a minor hack into some of ’s servers. The said attack deleted the ’s list of admin users and their passwords from a MySQL table.

Pertaining to this issue, the hacking group commented that this attempt was a part of their AntiSec (anti-security) push. Anonymous even claimed that they just made a minor hack, since they have more important targets. They said: “Don’t worry, we are busy elsewhere.”

Apple, on the other hand, had not yet released any defensive actions regarding the hack attack since Sunday evening. Though Anonymous’ move was not really that visible, it is believed that they had created some SQL injections. Perhaps this would be the first time that a hacking group planned to scrap Apple’s large survey site. Before, only few of their devices and individual accounts, such as or users, have been the target of most cyber crimes.

AntiSec (anti-security) attacks were usually done with a political or economic viewpoint, which the two big hacking groups – Anonymous and retired group – claimed as anti-liberty.
