NBC and Today Show use Ubuntu to recreate iCloud hack

iCloud Vulnerable

The famous vulnerability that allowed hackers' accounts iCloud and stealing nude photos of celebrities has not gone unnoticed by anyone. Apple has alleged that it is not its fault, that it was not due to any error of its own (to clear up all the criticism received, but the effect seems the opposite, a total passivism on the part of the apple company).
Anyway, in a show of calming down, Apple you have put an additional "security system" to your iCloud cloud. From now on, when they access the account, an email will be sent alerting that someone has accessed iCloud. Quite peace of mind, that someone can continue to access, but at least you will know ...
Well, now the NBC and Today Show They have used Ubuntu to illustrate how the pirate (not a hacker, as all the media tend to say) accessed the photos of celebrities using the advantages that Linux provides. But this can give a somewhat bad idea of ​​Linux users that from here I want to defend, not all have malicious ideas and are dedicated to being cyber criminals. Just as I do not believe that all people who have knives are stabbers ...
It looks like he may have used an image of Ubuntu 12.04 for the attack, but this is when the story takes a turn, the hacker seems not to be a regular Linux user. And this gives points in favor of Linux, since the pirate used Mac OS X and with VirtualBox he virtualized Ubuntu to attack iCloud with it. And said that it is a plus, since the staunch defenders of Mac OS X and MacTaliban, should understand the power of Linux once and for all. If OS X is so good, why didn't they use it for the attack?
