Reader PSA: Gird Your iTunes Accounts


This just in from Gawker via TechCrunch: There has been yet another security breach involving Apple. According to Ryan Tate, “If you’ve got an iTunes account linked to a PayPal account, you should be on guard; users with that setup are reporting mass purchases of software, videos and music through the iTunes Store.” What kind of money are we talking about here? One user says that he was charged over $4700, while another claims that hackers drained everything from his bank account. Whether the issues are on the iTunes side, or a PayPal issue, it might be a good time to strengthen your password.
