Hackers Who Attacked Twitter, Facebook, Apple May Have 'Hundreds' More Victims

Hackers Who Attacked Twitter, Facebook, Apple May Have 'Hundreds' More Victims | "#Google+, +1, Facebook, Twitter, Scoop, Foursquare, Empire Avenue, Klout and more" | Scoop.it
The hackers who attacked Twitter, Facebook and Apple employees likely claimed many more victims, an expert said Wednesday. But exactly how many remains unknown.

 

His site, which has about 200,000 registered users, is "the most widely read dedicated iOS developer forum," he said. Most visitors are software developers who discuss technical issues around building apps for the iPhone and iPad.

Not everyone who visited his site was hacked. His own computer, for example, was not infected, he said.

 

Sefferman said the hacker appeared to remove the malware from the site on Jan. 30. But on Wednesday, the site had not been taken down and experts warned users not to visit it because it may still infect their computers.

Gust MEES's curator insight, February 20, 2013 3:10 PM

The website that caused the hacks was identified as iPhoneDevSDK.

In an interview Wednesday, the website's owner, Ian Sefferman, said he was never contacted by Facebook or investigators looking into the attacks and only learned the site hosted malicious software, known as malware, when he was notified Tuesday by a reporter at the tech blog AllThingsD.

 

Sefferman said multiple other sites on the Internet also hosted the malware, though he did not provide details on which sites.
