Apple has settled a lawsuit against a Web site that had divulged company secrets about a new Mac before the product was formally launched.
As part of its settlement with Cupertino-based Apple, ThinkSecret.com says it will be shutting down.
In announcing the agreement, ThinkSecret.com says the identity of the sources who leaked the information will not be revealed.
Apple sued the Web site in January 2005 after the site published details about a new bare-bones Mac two weeks before the product was formally launched.
The settlement comes after a California judge last year denied Apple's bid to force the identification of people who had apparently leaked company information to three other Web sites.
