Korean Apple Online Store Hacked

Apple's Korean online store has been defaced by a hacker.

The attack, carried out by someone working under the name "Dinam," who claimed in his post to be Turkish, was brought to the attention of Silicon.com last Thursday. The defacement was removed from Apple's Web site shortly after Silicon.com alerted the company. Apple has subsequently refused to comment on the matter.

Jason Hart, CEO of security company Whitehat UK, told Silicon.com: "The defacer has managed to get administrator access to the Web server." Although Hart suspected that the hacker was after little more than "self-gratification" through vandalizing the site, he said Apple should communicate what happened to its customers to end speculation.
