  • Hackers are trying to Bribe Apple Employees for their Login Details


    According to sources, hackers are offering Apple employees in Ireland thousands of euros for their login details.
    "You'd be surprised how many people get on to us, just random Apple employees,"
    "You get emails offering you thousands [of euros] to get a password to get access to Apple. I could sell my Apple ID login information online for 20,000 (15,000 / $23,000) tomorrow. That's how much people are trying. They look for someone who has jumped diagonally into a junior managerial position, so not a lifer working their way up, and not a lifer who has been there a long time."
    Notably, Apple has launched a 'scheme' called "Grow Your Own" as a response to the problem, though the name is a mystery. It's unclear what exactly the hackers are after but they could be going after intellectual property, corporate strategies, and more.

    Apple was contacted about the report but has yet to comment.

      I would save they are just probably trying to downgrade their iPhones using purple restore, but I don't see somebody willing to pay thousands of euros for that. Unless it leads to some kind a hack of that system that would allow people to restore to any iOS at whim, there are people who would pay a lot for that

      This is pen testing approach conducted by Apple itself to test for insider threat vulnerabilities.
