Foxconn Hit By Hackers

Hackers have stolen the usernames, passwords and personal information of every Foxconn employee and released the info on TPB and Pastebin. Well that's just great, now the employees are being exploited and victimized by hackers now too. frown

A group of hackers known as Swagg Security is taking credit for a breach of Foxconn security, resulting in the theft of usernames, passwords, and other private information. In a series of Twitter posts yesterday, the group boasted that it publicly released the information on the Pirate Bay Web site as well as on Pastebin. The attack grabbed the credentials of every Foxconn employee, according to 9to5Mac, including Terry Gou, CEO of parent Hon Hai Industries.
