Apple attack could affect anyone, says tech site

Apple has said a small number of its computers were attacked by the same hackers that targeted Facebook.

Jacqui Cheng, Senior Apple Editor at technology news site Ars Technica, told the BBC it seemed "nothing was really stolen from Apple's network".

However, Cheng added the malicious software used in the attack "could affect anyone at home".

Apple said it would release a software update to protect customers against it.
