Apple responds to iCloud hack claims

Apple has responded to claims from a hacking group calling themselves “Turkish Crime Family” who said they have the usernames and passwords of millions of iCloud and Apple accounts.

“There have not been any breaches in any of Apple’s systems, including iCloud and Apple ID. The alleged list of email addresses and passwords appears to have been obtained from previously compromised third-party services,” an Apple spokesperson told Fortune.

Fortune said the set of credentials the hackers claim to have reportedly match the emails and passwords contained in a past breach at LinkedIn.

If users have reused passwords, the report advised them to create new unique, strong codes and enable two-factor authentication where possible.
