Foxconn's Servers Hacked, Exposing Vendor Usernames and Passwords

One of Foxconn's servers was reportedly hacked, exposing usernames and passwords for clients and employees. The group that took credit for the hack is called SwaggSec who claims they weren't doing it in response to working conditions or even for information on the iPhone 5, but simply for the enjoyment of it.

We encourage media, security experts, and other interested individuals to explore our leaks. Foxconn did have an appropriate firewall, but fortunately to our intent, we were able to bypass it almost flawlessly. Of course with funding ourselves we did have our limitations. But with several hacking techniques employed, and a couple of days in time, we were able to dump most of everything of significance.

9to5Mac was able to "verify these logins worked", though the servers have now been disabled by Foxconn and logins no longer valid. The original exploit was reportedly through an unpatched Internet Explorer vulnerability from a worker inside Foxconn.

According to the original posting the logins and passwords could allow individuals to make orders under company accounts such as Apple, IBM, Microsoft and Intel.

Foxconn is the manufacturing partner for Apple and dozens of other major U.S. companies. Apple's relationship with Foxconn has been under fire recently for the working conditions in their factories.

With a stupid username and password like that Foxconn deserved to be hacked, and they should feel very fortunate that the hackers didn't plan to do any more damage whilst they were inside their system.

Kind of like when a woman dresses provocatively she deserves to be raped? Or when you leave the front door unlocked you deserve to have your family murdered?

Seriously, why were these passwords not redacted on this post, and why are people admitting to trying to use them? Fairly sure that's illegal.
