Apple Learning Interchange Account Security Compromised

Several readers have notified us that they have received e-mails from Apple notifying them their account user names and passwords for Apple Learning Interchange (ALI) may have been compromised. The potential security breach is limited to the ALI service and includes only non-sensitive information, although Apple warns that if members use the same name and password on other sites, they should consider changing those passwords.

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.

In addition, the Apple Learning Interchange site is currently offline.

Apple Learning Interchange offers resources for K-12 educators, providing open access to lesson plans and social networking opportunities. The site also offers technology advice and other teaching resources.
