Hackers are offering up to 20,000 (twenty thousand) euros for the opportunity to receive the credentials that provide access to sensitive corporate information. However, some sources claim that offers with bribe were randomly sent to Apple employees, depending on whose e-mail address was intercepted by hackers. According to another version, bribe proposals were sent targeted and the attackers chose specific corporate employees who have had access to classified information. The hackers’ objective was to use the credentials and passwords to gain access to insider information of Apple corporation. However, the attackers failed to bribe any of the employees of Apple Company, and the reason for which they had to offer such an impressive amount of bribes, remain unknown.

Though if hackers could buy employee’s credentials and passwords they could get an access to the corporate systems of the company. So, some confidential Apple’s information could “leak”, among which – usernames and passwords of all users as well as commercial secret records of the company.

Apple is taking very seriously the confidentiality within the corporation. It is known that the information about bribes was leaked to the media from the Apple Irish office located in the city Cork. The local campus includes about 4000 employees. This is where the activity of Europe, the Middle East and Africa is supervised.

According to representatives of Apple, the company has already responded to the incident and initiated its own investigation, as well as will conduct an inspection within the staff. Details of the inspection have not been disclosed.
