Foxconn Hacked, Making Its Passwords Publicly Available
Foxconn has more to worry about. As well as struggling to deal with allegations of exploitative working conditions in its factories, it’s now had the bad fortune of being hacked, having login and password information spread across the web.
A hacker group called SwaggSec gained access to Foxconn’s internal networks through an unpatched copy of Internet Explorer that was being used by a Foxconn employee.
SwaggSec have distributed a 6.04MB file — through Demonoid and The Pirate Bay — which contains login and password information for Foxconn’s email servers, intranets, and various other company-affiliated sites. The affected servers are now closed.
