Apple Learning Initiative security breach
The mothership is alerting members of this online program and forums that their account credentials, login and password, have been compromised. Although such events are common enough elsewhere on the interwebs, it’s quite unusual for one to affect Apple.
The email sent to members was included in the post:
Dear Apple Learning Interchange member,
We recently learned that the security of Apple Learning Interchange (ALI) members’ names and passwords may have been compromised. These accounts are limited to accessing the ALI discussion board and do not contain sensitive information such as credit card or social security numbers.
If you use this name and password combination on other websites and services, you may risk vulnerability on those sites. We strongly recommend that you change your password on any site that might have the same name and password combination.
We apologize for the inconvenience, and thank you for your continued participation in ALI.

The officer in charge told me he was advised by the CPS to use the website to find out about the weapon and he was about to present it in court. I looked at the information and some of it had substance and some of it was completely made up.' Mr. Finn, a former Metropolitan Police and City of London officer and Home Office adviser, added that he has heard of at least three other cases where officers from around the country have been advised by the CPS to look up evidence on Wikipedia."
