Despite scary headlines, Apple 'hack' caused no damage There were a few 'scary' headlines out there today about Apple being hacked by Anonymous, with many users being scared that their iTunes account had fallen into malevolent hands.
CNNMoney says there is nothing to worry about, as the "hack" only revealed 27 user accounts, and none of those are even iTunes accounts.

The SQL injection managed to steal 27 names and encrypted passwords from an online survey at the Apple Business Intelligence website.

Apple has since taken the survey down.

If you are one of 225 million iTunes users, breathe easy, your details are safe.
