8 months’ probation for Australian teen who hacked Apple

The Australian teenager who pleaded guilty to hacking Apple was given eight months of probation on Thursday.

A magistrate told the Children’s Court that the hacking was “serious, sustained, and sophisticated,” Bloomberg said. The now-adult hacker was 16 when the offending began.

The case made headlines last month after it was reported that a high school student repeatedly broke into Apple’s servers and downloaded 90GB of data. Investigators eventually recovered about 1TB of sensitive data sourced from Apple’s systems.

A prosecutor said previously that the teenager showed a high degree of skill and persistence to carry out the hacking.

No personal data was compromised during the hacks, Apple said.
