Someone is attacking Apple buses outside of San Francisco

  • An image sent to us from an anonymous source at Apple documenting the broken shuttle bus windows

In response, we've learned that Apple has rerouted the bus routes for employees living in San Francisco, adding 30-45 minutes of commute time each way, as the company works with authorities to see what exactly is going on.

He says the objects were rocks or pellet guns. At least four separate shuttles are said to have suffered broken windows while driving on 280.

In the past week, five Apple commuter shuttles carrying employees to and from the company's Cupertino offices have been attacked, several sources tell us.

California highway patrol public information officer Art Montiel confirmed the incidents.

Meanwhile Buzzfeed reports that the text bomb affects all Apple devices running iOS 10 up to iOS iOS 11.2.5 beta. "Nasty. Masri revealed in a Twitter post that the flaw, which he named ChaiOS bug , could freeze your iPhone .

The report quoted Montiel as saying that if someone has targeted the buses, they will be on screen soon; they can not hide themselves for so long.

Buses carrying Google and Apple employees from San Francisco to their respective headquarters buildings in Mountain View and Cupertino have been attacked, according to multiple sources.

"The outside of the windows were shattered, but nothing went inside and no injuries were reported", Montiel said. The route change "could mean an additional 30 to 40 minutes of commute time in each direction for some riders", the email explained.

At this point, it's unclear who is behind the attacks. The safety of their employees is their first priority as they are working closely with law enforcement to examine these incidents and they will notify their employees as soon as the coaches will be returned to regular route, as said by the company.

There have been 37 reported cases among teenagers so far in 2018, with half of the reports being intentional. If ingested, Tide advises consumers to drink a glass of milk and water and seek immediate medical attention.

All of the attacks have occurred on Highway 280 so both Google and Apple have decided it best to reroute the commute to avoid the area. Mashable obtained the email and has verified its authenticity.

(NASDAQ:AAPL)'s charter buses are targeted as well.

Demonstrators in 2013 and 2014 blocked and damaged buses to protest the booming tech industry's impact on affordable housing and the gentrification of San Francisco.

The Redwood City CHP is now working with Apple and Google to identify the sources of the past week's attacks.

Reports have come in from across the Great Lakes region, but so far, there no one can say where the possible meteor landed. Usually, during annual meteor showers, stargazers only see smaller dust particles burning up in the upper atmosphere.

The buses typically do not bear names of companies, but acronyms for destinations that appear on the vehicle's digital banners can indicate to which tech campus they travel.
