PostSubject: Apple Hacked !!   Tue Feb 19, 2013 11:07 pm



Apple said Tuesday its employees' computers had been hacked, signaling that even a company once thought to be hacker-proof is vulnerable to a sophisticated attack that has claimed a growing number of victims.

Apple said in a statement that malicious software had infected "a limited number" of employees' computers, but no customer data had been compromised.

"There is no evidence that any data left Apple," the statement said. "We are working closely with law enforcement to find the source of the malware."

The disclosure marked another blemish for a company that once owned a sterling reputation for security. While Microsoft customers have long complained about viruses in Windows software, Apple customers once thought they were safer. That's no longer true, experts said. As Apple's market share has grown, it has attracted more attention from hackers. Security researchers in April found that malware had infected more than 500,000 Mac computers in what was then the largest attack on Apple’s operating system.

Maybe we can stop hearing "I don't need anti-virus, I have a Mac" now :P Because if they were hacked by malware, then evidently they need some kind of protection on their system!
