    I don't think this site only reports on pro-Apple news. That is an incredibly short-sighted comment. Obviously there is a bias; however, this article can be interpreted a number of ways. For one, even the CEO of Dr. Web stated it could have been an honest mistake that occurred mainly as a result of Apple's well-known tight-lipped character. I would imagine it is hugely possible that it is just that. I realize that is borderline fanboy (girl) to say but if there is a firm who is helping and they did not really make that immediately known to Apple then doesn't some of that responsibility lie with the firm? They claim to have told Apple but when? There doesn't seem to be a mention of when Dr. Web handed over their information. It could have been after the server was shut down for all anyone knows.
