Is this Australian kid the next Bill Gates?
NEW DELHI: An Australian teenager has apparently hacked into Apple's computer systems, although the tech giant said that no customer data was compromised. The kid accessed the system multiple times over a year as he was a "fan of Apple".
A 16-year-old private school student in Melbourne, who “dreamed of” working for Apple, has got the attention of the folks at Cupertino, California... by hacking into Apple’s mainframe computers and downloading 90 GB of secure files.
The teenage vice came into light during a court hearing he is facing. The boy used tunnels and VPNs to hack into system anonymously and downloaded files, which includes customers’ information, to a folder titled “hacky hack hack”... until a raid at his home revealed the files.
他法庭听证会上，这名少年的罪行曝光。这名男孩利用计算机隧道和VPN隐藏自己的身份，入侵系统并下载文件其中包括客户信息，然后保存在一个名为“hacky hack hack”的文件夹里。直到警方一次上门突袭，才发现了这些文件。
Apple identified the breach and notified FBI, who informed the local police. The company said in a statement that its teams "discovered the unauthorised access, contained it, and reported the incident to law enforcement".
The Aussie teen has pleaded guilty and the case is due to return to court for his sentencing next month.
A privacy expert has argued for leniency in the case, saying “for tech teens, it [hacking] can be a part of growing up”. And he could be right, as the world knows another teenage private-schooled hacker who grew up to be a tech titan: Bill Gates.
The Microsoft co-founder, when 15, was caught hacking a major corporation’s computer and was forced to give up computing for a year.
Don’t close the gates on prodigies!

He is an expert. Apple must hire him and employ for ethical hacking. However thr episode clears that whatever claims Apple may make about security are false. No system is foolproof. Well done boy.
instead of putting him in jail, make him n ethical hacker. it will be a boon
He has best of brains. Hacking into apple system is not easy.
Stop the clickbait titles. Give the title something meaningful like 16 year old boy hacks apple systems. No one wanted to know your opinion about whether he will be next bill gates. Stop these nonsense
Feku and Taklu can hire him for the IT cell.
now a days small small kids are so intelligent and technology freak and expert . may be he become next bill ates
Wrong place to use talent....

Most of the people not studying apple earlier due this reason earlier nobody hacked apple software soon people will start hack apple software
Gates was creative and business minded not destructive or Stealing. Different traits.
Super good to learn. I am sure the govt will take proper step to show him correct path so that his intelligence comes for good use in future
so now we have started justifying theft?
We hope so
bill gates is an international cheater and smuggler of computer hardware and software.he sold ten dollars software to the world at hundred dollar and accumulated money.would u tell him a genius or simply a dishonest business man. he was a dropout student in Harvard university bcoz his only aim was to create wealth.
This only proves that software companies are releasing half baked programs and fire walls and keep selling them without any safety concerns of users They even say users data are not compromised! The article openly glorifies hacking by the kid.
Gates was never creative or created anything, DOS was created by Paul Allen and Gates rode on it. and GUI was created by Apple and stole by Gates. Software licensing, copyright were literally just getting born at that era. Anyway since he is one of the richest this Earth came across, go ahead and praise him
when you are not sparing a teenager who rapes and robs why spare a teenager when he is hacking.
Apple''s rivals can employ him.
Give the boy a job in Apple. He is a genius.
