Looks like this attack has reached the U.S. and possibly other countries as well.

The hacker is reportedly targeting Apple products that do not have passcodes -- allowing for them to use the "Find My iPhone" function to remotely lock the devices.

That seems unpleasant. I have reluctantly put on passcodes. Thank you for the article!

Everyone thinks Apple is more secure than Windows devices yet things like this are beginning to happen.

They need to slow down the rapid pace of 'innovation' and hire some hackers to pound on their software before something really bad happens.
