Hackers Hit Foxconn, Leak Passwords


Foxconn, the Chinese manufacturing backend for most of the world?s largest tech firms including Apple, was hacked and usernames and passwords were posted online.

Hacker group Swagg Security claimed that it had entered Foxconn's network and posted a file to the Pirate Bay that included employees' usernames and passwords from the company along with passwords that allowed access to several of the company?s internal servers.

"Foxconn did have an appropriate firewall, but fortunately to our intent, we were able to bypass it almost flawlessly," the group said. "Of course with funding ourselves we did have our limitations. But 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," the group said.

"We hack for the cyberspace who share a few common viewpoints and philosophies. We enjoy exposing governments and corporations, but the more prominent reason, is the hilarity that ensues when compromising and destroying an infrastructure. How unethical right? Perhaps for the layman who has conformed to a society raised by the government that actively seeks to maintain power and quell threats to their ventures. But to us and many others, the destruction of an infrastructure, the act of destruction that does not affect an individual, brings a sense of newfound content, a unique feeling, along with a new chance to start your own venture," the hackers wrote.

Foxconn is Apple's main manufacturer but also works with Dell, IBM, HP, Motorola, Cisco, Nokia, and practically any other tech firm that owns a hardware business. The company has come under scrutiny recently for alleged labor abuses that include unsafe conditions, inhumanly long hours, underage employees, and a spate of worker suicides. Chief executive Gou had recently compared the company's one million employees to animals in a zoo.
