Hackers Steal Data from 200,000 'Jailbroken' iPhone Users

Information about the Apple accounts of more than 200,000 iPhone users who "jailbroke" their phones has been stolen by cybercriminals who could use the data to lock the phones and hold them for ransom, according to Palo Alto Networks, a cybersecurity research firm. The malware behind the digital theft, dubbed "KeyRaider," has "successfully stolen over 225,000 valid Apple accounts and thousands of certificates, private keys, and purchasing receipts," Palo Alto researchers said in a blog post.
