Apple computers attacked

1:51 pm on 20 February 2013

Apple said on Tuesday its computers were attacked by the same hackers that targeted Facebook.

The iPhone-maker said a small number of its machines were affected, but they were isolated from the main. There was "no evidence" of data theft.

Last week Facebook said it had traced a cyber attack back to China.

Apple said it would release a software update to protect customers against the software used in the attack.
