A judge told the Children’s Court that the hacker was only 16 years old at the start of the attack but is now an adult. The defendant invaded Apple's internal system and replicated the relevant data and authentication keys. Apple discovered that the system was invaded and contacted the FBI. The Australian police then raided the hacker's home.

When interviewed by the police, the defendant stated that the motive for part of the act was “pretending to be a member of the company” and that access to the Apple Network was already addictive, as lawyers pointed out.

The judge stated that one of the allegations in this case involved unauthorized and reckless modification of data, and that an adult could be sentenced to a maximum of 10 years’ imprisonment, while a second offence without unauthorized access to the data was the highest.
