The hack was targeted at OSX. Twitter, Facebook, and obviously Apple are all OSX shops. There's only one department where you're likely to find OSX at Microsoft though, and here we are.

Note: since the actual 0day was in Java, most likely they could have included a Windows malware if they wanted, but it's a good bet that the majority of visitors to an iPhone dev site are running OSX.

re: Microsoft Hacked: Joins Apple, Facebook, Twitter
I am beginning to see a trend here among all of these corporations. I think that the decision by Thomlinson to not announce the breach immediately was a mistake that will bite him. If Microsoft is weary and sketchy about the actual breach itself what is to keep them form keeping exactly what was compromised form you also?
