Apple responds to iPhone Ransom Hack

Yesterday reports from Australia came in that iPhone users got extorted for getting their iPhones unlocked again. Users received emails that asked them to pay $100 to get their iPhone back. The hacker used Find My iPhone to lock the devices.

Apple has issued a statement according to ZDNet, that iCloud was not compromised in this hack. Apple tells users to change passwords. The statement is not very helpful to affected users. This support group provides the help you need to get your iDevices back. There are also some attempts in finding out how the hacker got the login and password of the hacked iPhone owners.

An interesting theory is that the hackers got in via a US proxy service. Such services are used to view geo locked content from abroad.

Apple is set to have an exciting fall and holiday season with the release of iOS 7 and OS Maverick in addition to a slew of new devices including the iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPad Air, iPad mini with Retina Display, Mac Pro, MacBook Air, iMac and MacBook Pro. There might also be something completely new that we do not know about. It is likely not the iWatch, which is expected for 2014.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
