According to a report from Reuters, Apple says it was attacked by a group of hackers who infected a small number of its Mac computers.

The admission from Apple comes just a few days after Facebook admitted that they were hacked by an unidentified hacker group that has been traced back to China. The group has staged sophisticated attacks by infiltrating Apple employee’s laptops, but Apple claims no user information was compromised.

Apple says that it is working with law enforcement to track down the hackers, but only a small number of employee’s Mac computers were breached. To help customers protect themselves against malicious software used in the attacks, Apple plans to release a software tool later today.

Details on the story are still developing. Information will be added as it’s available.
