AntiSec, A rogue band of hackers from infamous groups Anonymous and Lulzsec with similar ideologies have hit a number of organisations since they formed, but this, may be their highest profile hack yet: Apple Inc.

While apple was either grinning to themselves at the sight of their counterparts getting hacked or battering down the hatches in fear of what would happen, Gizmodo is reporting that AntiSec managed to sneak past apple security, hack into one of Apple Inc.’s servers and gain 26 usernames and passwords for Admin.

While this hack in no way jeopardized the average Apple product users security it does send a clear message that no company is invincible.
