Hackers hit iCloud service in China; Security experts blame government for attack that sought login details
October 23, 2014
FULL TEXT For Apple in China, trouble seems to be the new normal. Cybersecurity monitoring groups and security experts have said that people trying to use Apple's online data storage service, iCloud, were the target of a new attack that sought to steal users' passwords and then spy on their activities. Starting over the weekend, when many users across China tried to sign into their iCloud accounts, they may have been giving away login information to a third party, in what is called a man-in-the-middle attack. ''You think you are getting information directly from Apple, but in fact the authorities are passing information between you and Apple, and snooping on it the whole way,'' said a spokesman for an independent censorship-monitoring website, GreatFire, who declined to be named because of fear of reprisal.

Sony has been impressing with its compact Xperia phones, but its tablets are also worth a look. Like the phones, the Xperia Z line of tablets are built to be robust yet aimed at the premium end of the market. The Xperia tablets have stuck with the 10-inch models until now, but the Z3 Tablet Compact has changed all that. Available in 16GB and 32GB versions, the tablet is offered in wifi only and 4G LTE versions. Powered by a 2.5Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon quad core processor, with 3GB of RAM, the tablet runs Android KitKat. It's waterproof, dust tight and a bit more robust than your average tablet. And all in a slim, light package that comes with an 8-inch display.
