  • Chinese Hackers Attack Apple


    Apple confirmed Tuesday that it has been attacked by a group of hackers believed to be the same individuals (an small outfit of Chinese hackers) responsible for targeting Facebook recently.

    Based on our knowledge of the matter at this time, the hackers succeeded at infecting the Mac laptops of several Apple employees. In the wake of the attack, the incident is being described as the "widest known cyber attacks against Apple-made computers to date."

    The following statement was provided by Apple to the press:

    Apple has identified malware which infected a limited number of Mac systems through a vulnerability in the Java plug-in for browsers. The malware was employed in an attack against Apple and other companies, and was spread through a website for software developers. We identified a small number of systems within Apple that were infected and isolated them from our network. There is no evidence that any data left Apple. We are working closely with law enforcement to find the source of the malware.
    "This is the first really big attack on Macs," an unnamed source tells Reuters. "Apple has more on its hands than the attack on itself."

    We're told that Apple plans to release a software tool capable of protecting consumers from a similar attack.

      Apple confirmed Tuesday that it has been targeted and attacked by the group of Chinese hackers responsible for similarly taking aim at Facebook recently.
      Michael did you even read the statement from Apple? Where did they confirm that the attack came from China? It's only rumoured this is the same group that hacked Facebook.

      Your opening statement and title are simply tabloid-grade "journalism".

      Typical sensationalized story by Messany. Watch my post get deleted.
