Chinese government behind attack on Apple iCloud?
posted by Alan F. / Oct 20, 2014, 10:31 PM
Greatfire.org says that the goal of these hackers is to obtain usernames and passwords of iCloud users in order to leak messages, photographs and other content stored using the feature. While the U.S. government and major corporations are stating that the Chinese government is to blame for some of the hacking, Beijing denies it completely. Back in September, hackers allegedly broke into iCloud to help leak pictures of celebrities in various stages of undress.

I doubt the US government installs spyware, but they use a different approach. Most likely certain backdoors (be it intentional or not is anyone's guess) that their spying agencies can exploit.

The ChiComs only have to hack the NSA to get everything. If the NSA is run like the rest of the US Gov, it should be a piece of cake. Every branch of this gov is totally INCOMPETENT.
