Hackers have targeted Apple in its latest security attack.

The group, AntiSec, posted a message to Twitter on Sunday claiming to have gained access to private data from an Apple Inc server. The document, posted to the web, contained several usernames and passwords.

The hackers said in a statement posted to Twitter that they had accessed Apple's systems due to a security flaw used in software used by the Cupertino, Calif.-based gadget maker and other companies.

"#Apple could be target, too. But don't worry, we are busy elsewhere," they said.

AntiSec is allegedly made up of members from the recently-disbanded LulzSec, a hacking group that made headlines for breaking into websites belonging to the CIA, the FBI and the U.S. Senate.
