Hacking Update — Change Your Apple Password!

Apple seems to be hacked!

Tech Talk at SSCL

It seems hackers have struck again — this time they’ve managed to get passwords to access Apple’s iCloud system — so just FYI — if you own an Apple device it would probably be a really good time to change your password!

It seems with this particular hacking group — they are remotely locking Apple device and then demanding $100 to unlock them — so just FYI!

And granted the article focuses on people living in Australia but even so — one can’t be too careful in our current high tech age where hacking is rampant!

Here’s a link to a Sydney Morning Herald article on the subject:

Have a great day!
