Apple Warns of Learning Interchange Security Breach

Apple has apparently been warning Apple Learning Interchange members that their user account passwords may have been compromised. The Mac and iPhone maker began sending out email notifications to program members on Thursday, and also took the ALI Web site offline.

According to the email sent out to ALI members, their passwords may have been compromised, but the accounts are limited to accessing discussion boards and do not include access to credit card numbers, social security numbers, or other sensitive information.

The company also advised in the email "While ALI member names and passwords are not linked to your Apple ID, our records indicate that your ALI member name and Apple ID are the same. For this reason we strongly recommend that you change your Apple ID password as well as any others that might have the same name and password combination."

TMO has contacted Apple for additional information about the potentially compromised passwords, but the company has not yet responded.
