Apple With all the news about Anonymous, LulzSec, Anti-Sec, and so on, you'd almost forget there are more ethical hacking groups out there as well. One such group, YGN Ethical Hacker Group, informed Apple of several weaknesses in its developers website on April 25. Apple acknowledged the flaws, but so far, hasn't done anything about them. YGN Ethical Hacker Group has now stated they will fully disclose the vulnerabilities if Apple doesn't fix them in the coming few days.

"Yes? At least that's what I would do. If they won't fix a security concern, I will widely publicize it to force them to fix it.


And if they were burgled would you accept that you are an accessory to the crime? I'm no lawyer but I suspect that's the way it would be viewed...
"

And if they were burgled, but the damage could've been greatly limited had you informed account holders?
