4 Consumer Stock Stories for Midweek Investment Shopping

Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL): Closing price $449.00

In an unusual admission, Apple says that said some of its computers were infected with the same malware that attacked Twitter and Facebook. In a statement to reporters on Tuesday, the company confirmed that its employees’ computers were infected with malware when they visited a Web site meant for software developers. However, according to knowledgable source, the compromised site iPhonedevsdk, which is an online forum for software developers, is still infected. In a statement, Apple said, “We identified a small number of systems within Apple that were infected and isolated them from our network. There is no evidence that any data left Apple. We are working closely with law enforcement to find the source of the malware.”
