Apple Devices Hacked and Held For Ransom in Australia

Apparently iOS and OS X users are waking up to a message on their phones that says they’ve been locked out, with a brief messaging asking for money, about $50 from PayPal, for the account to be re-opened. It’s still foggy how users are being locked out, but sources speaking with The Sydney Morning Herald suspect it might have to do with data breaches at larger companies where personal information was stolen during other attacks.”
