+ - Many Watering Holes, Targets In Hacks That Netted Facebook, Twitter and Apple->

chicksdaddy writes "There's more information on the hacks that compromised Twitter, Facebook Apple and Microsoft. According to a story by The Security Ledger, the attacks were part of a wide-ranging operation that relied on many “watering hole” web sites that attracted employees from prominent firms across the U.S.
The assailants responsible for the cyber attacks used at least two mobile application development sites as watering holes in addition to the one web site that has been disclosed: iPhoneDevSDK.com. Still other watering hole web sites used in the attack weren’t specific to mobile application developers – or even to software development. Still, they served almost identical attacks to employees of a wide range of target firms, across industries, including prominent auto manufacturers, U.S. government agencies and even a leading candy maker, according to sources with knowledge of the operation."
