Anonymous, a hacktivist group responsible for many large scale attacks, has claimed responsibility for a recent security breach at Apple.

The group, related to the recently disbanded LulzSec, released 26 logins and passwords, claiming they were from an Apple server, linking to it from Twitter.

The group also announced it was continuing operation Anti-Security or AntiSec - a campaign brought into the spotlight by LulzSec, which it claimed was its motivation for a series of damaging website security breaches and denial of service attacks.

These include the FBI, Nintendo, Eve Online and Sony Pictures. The campaign was also responsible for the Playstation Network going offline for several weeks recently.

Apple has yet to confirm the hack or issue any statement regarding the news.

It seems AntiSec is still very much alive and routing for more targets, despite LulzSec having disbanded amidst one of its members having supposedly been arrested in the UK. What do you make of the news? Let us know in the forum.
