Apple confirms cyber attack, releases Java update and malware removal tool

Dan Moren | Feb. 20, 2013
Apple confirmed to Reuters on Tuesday that some of its employees were victims of cyber attacks.

Historically, Macs have not been a popular target for security attacks of this sort, though the ecosystem has battled a few outbreaks of malware over the past few years. However, it seems likely--given the pattern of recent attacks--that the target was Apple itself, rather than its platform at large.

Updated at 2:23 p.m. PT with information about the Java update and malware removal tool.
