(Newser) – Apple is the latest target to get hit by hackers. The newly formed hacking group AntiSec uploaded a document to the Internet that members say contains 26 administrator usernames and passwords to an Apple server, reports the Wall Street Journal. Apple had no comment, but security experts said the targeted server was just used for tech support surveys, and the security breach was relatively benign. AntiSec, which stands for "anti-security," was formed in a merger between the hacker group Anonymous and the now-defunct LulzSec. "Don't worry," said AntiSec in a statement. "We are busy elsewhere."
