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.

I read few posts about the potential of becoming an accessory to crime by disclosing flaws that Apple was made aware of earlier. What a joke! If not de jure, someone is even reverting to ethical standards. Are you fri... kiding me? Are you that blind??

How about this: Apple is moraly responsible and bound by law, to do due dilligence and protect my personal information! If they fail to take proactive measures despite recieving all relevant infrormation and in the proces my information is used to harm me, I would take them (Apple) to court! This is akin to "inside job" ... bank management knew of faulty lock and failed to replace it? What does that mean, they were part of the heist or what?
