Apple disclosed it has been hit by the same hackers that attacked Facebook, adding a new level of urgency to growing reports of security breaches.
The company says it was attacked by the same group that targeted Facebook- but that no data appears to have been stolen.
Apple is releasing software to protect consumers against the malicious software used in the attacks.
It comes as cyber-security attacks have been on the rise. Mandiant, a cyber-security firm - says a secretive Chinese military unit- located in this building- identified as the People's Liberation Army's Shanghai-based unit 61398- is behind hundreds of attacks. Though, currently there is no clear link to the Apple and Facebook attacks.
China continues to deny the allegations- and says it is the victim of U.S. hacking.
