SummaryThe firm said some of its machines were affected, but there was 'no evidence' of data theft.

Tech giant Apple has said its computers were attacked by the same hackers that targeted Facebook last week.

The US-based firm said a small number of its machines were affected, but added there was no evidence of data theft.

Last week Facebook said it had traced a cyber attack back to China, which had infiltrated employees'' laptops, the BBC reports.

In a statement, the iPhone maker said that it has identified malware which infected a limited number of Mac systems through a vulnerability in the Java plug-in for browsers.

It added that the firm is working closely with law enforcement to find the source of the malware.
