Apple.co.kr Hacked? [Updated]

Silicon.com reports that Apple's Korean online store (http://apple.co.kr/store) was hacked and defaced.

The defacement was reported to be a dozen lines of code posted to the Apple.co.kr homepage. It was removed quickly by Apple after being notified of the incident.

The attack, carried out by someone working under the name 'Dinam', who claimed in his post to be Turkish, was brought to the attention of silicon.com last Thursday.


Apple.co.kr is running under Mac OS X/Apache. Few other details are available at this time, and Apple has made no comment.

Update: As many have pointed out, web-site hacks are common and frequently are simply the result of poorly configured web scripts, rather than a deeper security issue.
