I just got some very bad news: my iCloud account has been breached. Hacking into the cloud can have some very disastrous results.

The nice iPeople were so worried that they have attempted to contact me at least sixteen times in the last two days.

Needless to say, I’m very concerned.

Telephone Scam

There’s one going around right now. I get about 4-5 calls a day.

The caller identifies themselves as representing “Microsoft Technical Department”. They go on, saying they have observed suspicious activity in your account or some such.

If you continue, they have you enter a few strokes and a whole list of items pops up.(about 25) They say that each item represents someone, somewhere, who is currently using your computer for their own purposes without your permission.
