Apple is releasing a rubber bumper for your passwords. Isn't that what they do when they have an issue???

seriously, is register also reporting on this non-story? business intelligence survey server is what they 'hacked' and got 26 user names and hash passwords.
they don't hack, they can't. they use pre-made tools for DDoS and SQLi. they just try wherever they can and if they are successful and manage to 'steal' something they tweet about it.
nothing has been stolen here, no customer data, nothing
