Reuters: Over the holiday weekend, hackers belonging to the Anonymous group broke into an Apple Web server used for surveys and published 27 usernames and passwords for the server. The group said the attack was part of its "AntiSec" campaign and tweeted, "Not being so serious, but well ... Apple could be target, too. But don't worry, we are busy elsewhere."

Apple declined to comment on the incident, but the targeted server appeared to have been taken offline.
