Apple has posted a new warning on it’s website for users of its iCloud online storage service amid reports of a concerted effort to steal passwords and other data from people who use the popular service in China.
“We’re aware of intermittent organised network attacks using insecure certificates to obtain user information, and we take this very seriously,” the company said in a post on Tuesday on its support website. The post said Apple’s own servers had not been compromised.
Apple’s post didn’t mention China or provide any details on the attacks. But it was reported on Tuesday that some Chinese internet users have begun seeing warnings that indicate they had been diverted to an unauthorised website when they attempted to sign into their iCloud accounts.
