Somehow this line went to print without catching an editor’s eye:
The boy, 16, from the southern city of Melbourne, broke into the U.S. computer giant’s mainframe from his suburban home many times over a year…
But seriously, there’s an interesting nugget in the story about Apple responding to WhatsApp messaging, presumably encrypted, by sending foriegn police after a juvenile.
The report said an AFP raid on the boy’s family home produced two laptops, a mobile phone and a hard drive that matched the intrusion reported by Apple.
The sensitive documents were saved in a folder called “hacky hack hack”, the report said.
It said the boy had boasted about his activities on the mobile messaging service WhatsApp.
