Apple today reported a security breach in a “small number” of computers today that took advantage of a Java exploit. As Reuters originally reported, the company says “there was no evidence that any data left Apple,” and no user information is said to have been compromised in the attack. However, Apple did make mention of a correlation between this attack and the attack on Facebook and Twitter, as well as other corporations in the United States and is currently working with law enforcement to track down the hackers responsible.
A software patch will be issued later today to Apple’s internal and consumer systems in order to address that and any other problems. Apple’s statement about the breach is available, after the break.
