Apple denies hacking reports after hackers tried to blackmail it for $100,000
Apple has denied reports that it has been hacked. This comes after a group of hackers tried to blackmail the company into paying $100,000 in return for the deletion of what was claimed to be customers’ login information.
Reports emerged on Tuesday that a group that calls itself ‘Turkish Crime Family’ claimed to have contacted Apple over the login information of 300 million iCloud accounts.
They group reportedly published a Youtube video to show that they had they could remotely wipe the iPhones belonging to people in the login information.
Apple has, however, released a statement that this is not true.
“There have not been any breaches in any of Apple’s systems including iCloud and Apple ID. The alleged list of email addresses and passwords appears to have been obtained from previously compromised third-party services,” an Apple spokesperson told Fortune.
