In response, Apple issued a statement today confirming the invasion, but also stressed that user data had not been stolen. A spokesperson for Apple said in a statement: “At Apple, we vigilantly protect our networks and have dedicated teams of information security professionals that work to detect and respond to threats. In this case, our teams discovered the unauthorized access, contained it, and reported the incident to law enforcement. We regard the data security of our users as one of our greatest responsibilities and want to assure our customers that at no point during this incident was their personal data compromised.”

It is reported that the boy is quite famous in the hacker world. When launching an attack, he used VPNs and other tools to avoid being tracked. However, the serial number of the MacBook laptop used by the teenager was recorded by the Apple server.
