Apple on Friday mended a security hole that could have enabled hackers to hijack Apple Store accounts to make fraudulent orders, Wired reports.

The flaw could have resulted in customer passwords being accessed to control victims' account data. Information at risk included names, addresses, telephone numbers, order histories and credit-card information, though not credit-card numbers.

To access the information, attackers required only a victims' email address, after which an attacker could place orders.

Apple spokesman Bill Evans told Wired: "Apple does not believe any customers were affected by the flaw. We take all reports of vulnerabilities seriously and have a track record of being able to respond quickly."
