Hackers hit Foxconn, but not because of worker conditions


The user names and passwords clipped from Foxconn on Wednesday can be used to place fraudulent orders from the company’s clients, the hackers said in a statement accompanying a torrent file containing the stolen data. Foxconn has taken its services site offline.

The group, Swaggsec, said that they didn’t do this as a result of working conditions at Foxconn factories (contrary to earlier reports). Instead, it looks like they did it just because they could.
