Apple’s Source Code Stolen in Data Breach: What You Need to Know

Recently, Apple has been in the spotlight after an alleged data breach resulted in a hacker stealing the source code of its internal tools. The threat actor group known as ‘IntelBroker’ has claimed responsibility for the theft of the source code for three commonly used internal tools at the tech giant.

The Stolen Tools

The three internal tools in question are AppleConnect-SSO, Apple-HWE-Confluence-Advanced, and AppleMacroPlugin. While details about two of these tools remain unknown, AppleConnect-SSO is said to be an authentication system used by Apple employees to access specific apps within the company’s network. This tool is essential for employees to securely access the company’s internal resources and is integrated with Apple’s Directory Services database.

The hacker group, IntelBroker, reportedly released the stolen data from the breach on a dark web forum. In a post on X (formerly known as Twitter) by Dark Web Informer, the group announced the breach and shared screenshots from the forum where they posted about leaking the internal source code of Apple’s tools. The authenticity and intentions behind the release remain unclear.

It is uncertain whether the source code is being offered for free or if it is being sold by the group. Dark web posters are known for making false claims of hacking into major tech companies’ databases to make a profit. It is challenging to determine if this breach is legitimate or just a hoax to create panic.

Apple’s Response

Gadgets 360 was unable to verify the claims made by IntelBroker, and Apple has not yet responded to the allegations. It is essential for Apple to address this issue promptly and take measures to secure their internal tools and systems. AMD, another tech giant allegedly targeted by the same hacker group, has stated that they are investigating the claim.

The alleged data breach at Apple raises concerns about the security of internal tools used by employees. It is crucial for companies to prioritize cybersecurity and implement robust measures to prevent such incidents in the future. As the story unfolds, it is essential to stay informed and vigilant about potential cyber threats in the ever-evolving digital landscape.
