You might want to check your iTunes receipts: according to the AFP, hacked iTunes accounts — possibly yours! — are available for sale all over China for prices as low as just a few bucks.
Not only do these accounts include credit card and password details, they are being sold by the Amazon.com of China, Taobao, who is claiming to have no liability in regards to the items being sold, and being unable to pull the hacked accounts for sale unless it receives a “formal request” to do so.
“At this time, we have not received any information from Apple or any other principal related to the iTunes accounts indicating that these products either violate our listing rules or infringe on the IP of others,” the company said.
There’s over 50,000 of the hacked iTunes accounts being sold, with purchasers being advised to use them for no more than 24 hours.
Best play it safe. In the immortal words of Antoine Dawson, change your password, hide your wife.
