Hacking Group Threatens iPhone and iPad Users


We recently became aware of an ongoing security risk related to Apple ID accounts. As a result, we strongly recommend that you immediately change your Apple ID password (if you have one). We also recommend that you enable two-factor authentication for your Apple account.
