May 28, SecurityWeek – (International) Compromised Apple IDs used to hold iPhones for ransom. Users of Apple mobile devices reported attackers using compromised Apple IDs to enable Lost Mode through Apple’s iCloud service, using the service to lock devices and demand a ransom to unlock them. The ransom messages bear the name of an Oracle engineer that was likely chosen at random by the attackers, according to a Symantec researcher.
