Hackers Are Threatening to Wipe All of Our iPhones Unless Apple Gives Them $100,000 of iTunes Gift Cards

Hackers Are Threatening to Wipe All of Our iPhones Unless Apple Gives Them $100,000 of iTunes Gift Cards

Now that hackers have violated every female celebrity’s privacy by hacking their iPhones, they’re moving on to the rest of us. And this ain’t good.

Apparently, a group of hackers called the Turkish Crime Family managed to get a list of at least 300 million people’s iCloud passwords.

And they’ve told Apple they’re going to log into those accounts and remotely wipe the data on ALL of their iPhones on April 7th . . . unless Apple pays them a ransom. They want either $75,000 in Bitcoin or $100,000 in iTunes gift cards.

They say if Apple pays up, they’ll delete the list . . . but it’s a tricky spot for Apple. $100,000 is insignificant to a company that big . . . but once you start negotiating with hackers and blackmailers, it sets a dangerous precedent.

So what should YOU do?

  • One, you should back up anything that’s important from your phone ASAP, especially photos.
  • Two, change your iCloud password.
  • And three, hope that either the hackers are bluffing or Apple figures out how to protect you so this just winds up being a false alarm.
