Apple iOS Hack Sours Company's Hacker-Proof Image

It was a bad weekend for Apple. A major security breach potentially exposed the personal information of millions who downloaded apps from the Chinese App Store. (Video via Apple)
At least 31 of the Chinese store's more popular apps were affected, including Rovio's "Angry Birds 2." Hackers used an altered version of Xcode, which is Apple's development software, to infiltrate legitimate developers' apps. (Video via Apple)
It's believed only Chinese developers were duped because they downloaded the program from local servers instead of Apple's servers. Normally, downloading a full copy of Xcode from Apple — while in China — takes a really long time.
