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.

In these cases, the civilian public is the last to know. If Hackers (ethical) discoved the issue, you can be sure that Crackers (unethical) have also discovered it. They are not publicizing something that criminals do not already know about.

If I can see how one might break in through your back door, you can be sure that burgler's have also noticed this.
