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.
