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.

''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.
