Apple has provided a simple Q&A section in English and Chinese to help calm fears generated in the media. Apple specifically noted in that Q&A section that "We have no information to suggest that the malware has been used to do anything malicious or that this exploit would have delivered any personally identifiable information had it been used. We're not aware of personally identifiable customer data being impacted and the code also did not have the ability to request customer credentials to gain iCloud and other service passwords."
