Submission + - Hackers Hit Apple Supplier Foxconn (

wiredmikey writes: Protests against Apple and Foxconn due to furor over reports about working conditions have gone digital.

A group known as SwaggSec has successfully hacked computers at Foxconn, and posted the stolen data to The Pirate Bay website.

News of the hack comes as protesters paid a visit today to Apple stores around the world to deliver petitions demanding the improvement of working conditions at factories run by Apple suppliers in China and other countries.

In response to the attack, Foxconn reportedly took down a website that explains the services it offers to some of its partners, including Apple, Cisco and Acer.
