Apple Urges Hacked iCloud Users to Change Passwords


Following a hack that affected a number of Apple users across Australia and New Zealand, Apple has urged affected iCloud users to change their passwords.

As a result of the recent hack, owners of iPhones, iPads and Macs had received messages saying that their devices had been locked and threatening to wipe them out unless US$100 was paid to a fake PayPal account in the name of Oleg Pliss.

The attackers, first reported by The Sydney Morning Herald, appeared to use Apple's "Find My Phone" feature to lock the devices' screens. The anti-theft feature locks phones that are reported lost.

Apple said that iCloud was not compromised during this incident, adding that impacted users should change their Apple ID password as soon as possible and avoid using the same user name and password for multiple services.

PayPal said that the Hotmail address listed by Oleg Pliss was not actually linked to a PayPal account and that user details and money were not compromised.
