Read Apple's statement, via All Things D:
Apple has identified malware which infected a limited number of Mac systems through a vulnerability in the Java plugin for browsers. The malware was employed in an attack against Apple and other companies, and was spread through a website for software developers. We identified a small number of systems within Apple that were infected and isolated them from our network.
Apple added that there was no evidence of any data leaving the company's Cupertino offices, and that Apple computers are now shipped with Java plug-ins disabled. Still, this marks one of the highest profile cyberattacks on Mac computers, which have long been praised for their virus and hacking "resistance." Apple is still working closely with law enforcement officers to catch the criminals. Apple has also promised software for consumers that will prevent a similar exploit.
