iPad and iPhone Ransom Hackers Arrested in Russia


Two weeks ago, word started to spread that a malicious hacker or group of hackers had figured out a way to invade unsuspecting iOS device users’ software systems and were locking people out of access to their devices.

For unlock device OK.” The attackers were asking for victims to send money through a PayPal account in exchange for release of the locked system.

A quick search query lead me to Forbes, where I discovered that Feedly had been hacked.
