Thereâ€™s a group of hackers out there that claims itÂ can reset hundreds of millions of iPhones by using stolen iCloud credentials. The attack should occur on April 7th unless Apple pays a ransom, but the iPhone maker denied having its servers breached. If the threat is real, it uses data taken from previous breaches. Information gained from previous hacks might be used to reset iPhones, a report showed, but itâ€™s not clear what the scope of the attack would be. So far, the hackers seem to be interested in getting as much publicity as possible.
But other scammers have developed a different iCloudÂ con, one that's getting more traction thanks to all the news detailing the potential attack on April 7th. The scammers call unsuspecting iPhone users to tellÂ them their iCloud accounts have been hacked. Whatever you may think, don't believe themÂ â€” your iCloud account is probably safe.
