    For years some pals of mine (apple fans boys) have constantly gloated about Apple being a platform that can NEVER get viruses or even get hacked, and having to listen them constantly put me down for sticking with windows... Boy how times have changed........ Every time these stories come to light I don't gloat back I just forward them the links..... ;-)

    Old news, already patched, you can stop gloating. I just saved you the trouble of sending this out to your friends, you're welcome.

    But when those accounts got hacked a few months back and Apple pretty much said that it wasn't a vulnerability of iCloud that caused it, then this happens, pretty much proving that it was.

    Glad it is patched though.

    Well if not for forum rules I'd post a link to a legitimate torrent for leaked nude celebs pics. Only caveat is that every pic has the Apple watermark. I'm sure your Apple friends won't mind.

    Pretty pathetic if you need stolen private images to get your kicks. There are real women out there y'know. Its not like women are extinct and pictures are all we have left.

    People these days, concerned that the govt and corporations are spying on them, yet will happily download other peoples private stuff if its leaked and then say "Well, you shouldnt of put on there" as if that justifies it all.

    Great that apple sorted it out. Their stuff is great if you got the cash, but its not worth the price they ask for.

    I don't see a reason to fuss about nude pics either.

    If anything it serves as another testament to how to internet works - What goes up doesn't come down.

    I'm more interested in the other stuff the hackers didn't disclose, like text and numbers. Shh don't tell anyone.

    *Ahemm* Good job Apple for acting on security issues. Don't worry about those hackers they got nothing but a few lame pics.

    Apple is very popular now and believed to be impenetrable by the apple fan boys so it is open season for hackers, Apple was never worth the bother for hackers as there were to few users but now it is worth the time and effort for hackers its only a matter of time before Apple gets hacked again, and again.

    mmm virus software for my Ipad no I would rather have a flash enabled browser. Microsoft was forced to allow other browsers bring on competition I don't want safari. I want IE on my ipad

    100% disagree with hacking its the same as breaking into someone's house and stealing.


    did I just rant.............................
