Forum site gives more details on Apple and Facebook hacks
The popular forum site that hackers used to access employee computers at Apple and Facebook gave more details today on how the cyberattack happened.
Apple revealed yesterday that hackers targeted computers used by its employees, but that "there was no evidence that any data left Apple." In a statement, the company said it discovered malware that made use of a vulnerability in a Java plug-in, and that it was sourced from a "website for software developers." Employee computers for Facebook and most likely dozens of other companies were also breached.
