Apple says it was the target of a malware attack that exploited vulnerabilities in the Java plug-in for browsers.
In January, Facebook was the target of a "sophisticated attack," which was reportedly triggered when several employees visited what the company described as a "mobile developer website." Now comes news that Apple was hit in exactly the same fashion.
"Apple has identified malware which infected a limited number of Mac systems through a vulnerability in the Java plug-in for browsers," reps for Apple wrote in a statement obtained by PC Magazine. "The malware was employed in an attack against Apple and other companies, and was spread through a website for software developers."
