Recent reports have revealed that Foxconn, the world’s largest tech manufacturing firm has been hacked. Their vulnerable systems have been made a target by the hacker group called Swagg security. Some very sensitive and confidential data of the company has been released on the internet. All this is happening amid the recent protests that have come in opposition to the working conditions of the companies’ manufacturing Apple iPhones.
It was through an old version of Internet explorer that the firm was using, that the hacker group could reach their internal confidential data. These internal files published by the hackers are personal things like the password and the username used by Terry Gou, the Foxconn boss. The affected servers have now been shut down. This was a huge blow for the firm as the important data is meant to be very personal and guarded. It was further said that unscrupulous sources might even try to make fake orders with the company, using this information.
There has been a recent ruckus regarding the working conditions of companies in China, and Foxconn has been in the middle of these discussions. It works with many different partners like Dell and IBM, but it has been Apple, which has borne the brunt of criticism the most.
It is essential that the culprits behind this major security breach are found and punished. The firm needs to do a whole lot of a cleaning act, before the status can be made clear. It is essential that the firm comes up with ideal plan of action to prevent such things from taking place in the future. It is currently riding high on its iPhone success, and they wouldn’t want anything to ruin it for them.
