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.

Restraining the snoops; Technology companies step in to do what Congress should to protect the people
October 22, 2014
Obama administration officials seem to think the Constitution gives the government a license to snoop on whomever it pleases, whenever it pleases. The founding document does no such thing, of course, but Congress cannot summon the courage to restrain the executive branch, and the judiciary shows little interest in restraining abuse. That leaves it to the people, through technology, to enforce the inherent right of Americans to be left alone. In the latest version of Apple's iPhone, encryption software scrambles content stored on the device in such a way that, unless the correct password is entered, unauthorized eyes can't browse through the emails, text messages, photographs and contacts stored on the device. Google has announced similar security features coming for Android smartphones.
