Beware! Hackers these days are busy piggybacking iCloud hack stories, tricking people to give away the login details claiming they are officials from the iCloud.

If you get a phone call claiming to be from Apple warning of an iCloud security breach, beware: It’s just a trick.

Unknown telephone scammers are randomly calling people, claiming that the cloud service of Apple, has been hacked, and asking them to give away their accounts details.

The scam is a very simple one. The potential victim receives an automated message that claims to be from Apple’s support, telling them there is an issue with their iCloud account or that it has been breached. They’re then put through to a human to “help” them.

Apple says no such breach occurred, and security researchers, like Troy Hunt of HaveIBeenPwned.com, say the group trying to extort Apple likely has reused login details from other sites’ password leaks. The first and foremost thing that you need to do if you want to make sure that your account is safe is by turning on the two-step verification step on your iCloud settings.

By the experience from the people who actually was the victim of this scam , there are some of the things that you can keep in mind so that you can tell the call is from the iCloud scammers.

  • The Call was automated : The fake call used a fairly cheap sounding computer-synthesized voice. An Apple automated call would be much higher quality, and probably use a real person. In worst cases, Siri analog.
  • The Caller ID number didn’t say “Apple” on it:  Caller ID can be faked (there’s no verification process), but the number displayed is from Milwaukie, Wisconsin. You can even search and find a real person’s name associated with that number via a reverse search and his address.
  • They called back multiple times: Person who were at the receiving end claim that they receive multiple calls from that same number. The five additional calls throughout the day make it clear it isn’t Apple.
  • Receiving calls on Home phone : You can easily login to your Apple id and check your account details to see the number you have provided during sign up. You can easily figure out that they are just trying to scam you.

iCloud Hack Torrent

Last few months of 2014 did not have much dull moments. Apple’s iCloud being hacked was one of the big news then. A hacker or the group of hackers calling themselves as “Pr0x13” released a password hacking tool called iDict in GitHub website which could break into any iCloud account and gave access to the victims iOS devices.

Apple’s iCloud security feature faced immense criticism, when a number of gorgeous Hollywood celebrities were on the news after their nude photos were leaked on the Internet. The celebrity nude photos leak scandal included top celebrities; Kim Kardashian, Vanessa Hudgens, Jenifer Lawrence, Rihana, Kristin Dunst , Kate Upton now Selena Gomez. Well, I wouldn’t exactly say all of us hated the leak, but that was a massive blow for Apple. Somehow the world renowned company’s security feature seemed extremely vulnerable.

While it did prove that Apple’s iCloud security infrastructure had a major flaw, but most of the hacks were caused due to the carelessness of users using easy passwords like “1234567”, “iloveyou”, “abc123” etc. iDict is a simple tool which only contained a list of 500 word long list of possible passwords worldwide. So, it is by no means a guaranteed hacking tool. However, most of the users tend to use the simplest of passwords and suffer. Users will need to use rather stronger passwords and use two step authentication codes while accessing their accounts.

Pr0x13 did reportedly announce that the primary purpose of leaking the celebrity nudes and releasing the tool was not just to create scandals, but to alert Apple to fix the vulnerability in their security infrastructure. And the scandal seems to have been working too, as Apple released updated i OS soon after and has been reported to have been working to make their security feature stronger.

Being human as we are, although the leak of celebrity photos did scare us a bit, but there are people who enjoyed it just as much. It was like a dream come true, and don’t be judgmental, why wouldn’t it be? Hollywood might just be the closest thing to heaven there is.
