iOS Blocking — Do Not Give In to Cyber Blackmail!

Another scandal beside the one with celebrity nude photo leaks seems to break out soon. Recently, many owners of Apple phones and tablets have faced iCloud account blocking. Accounts are blocked by Apple itself in response to continuous bruteforce attempts. Positive Technologies experts warn you of iCloud blocking attacks conducted for the sake of blackmail and ask to ignore suspicious emails.

Nowadays cybercriminals are very attentive to information security researches — celebrity photos appeared on the Internet right after Andrey Belenko published his report "iCloud Keychain and iOS 7 Data Protection". Following notorious photo publications, Apple restricted the number of login attempts. Once all of them fail, an account gets blocked.


How to restore your account?

You can easily restore your account on http://iforgot.apple.com/ using your email or security questions. Moreover, you can either set a new password or keep a current one.


Positive Technologies experts have already informed Apple about the ongoing situation. We recommend that all iCloud users, whose accounts have been blocked (most probably due to insufficient iCloud automation protection), refer to the Apple's official recovery procedure and ignore malicious tricks.

  8. Connect your device to your computer using the cable that came with it.
    Select your iPhone, iPad, or iPod when it appears in iTunes.
    In the Summary panel, click Restore.
    Click Restore again to confirm that you want to restore your device to factory settings and delete all data and content. iTunes will download the device software file and restore your device.
    After your device is restored to factory settings, it will restart. When it does, you’ll see the "Slide to set up” welcome screen. Follow the steps in the device Setup Assistant. You can set up your device as new or use a previous backup. If you restored an iOS device that has cellular service, it will activate after you finish setting up your device.

  21. I just want to share my experience with everyone. I have being hearing about this blank ATM card for a while and i never really paid any interest to it because of my doubts. Until one day i discovered a hacking man called Robert. he is really good at what he is doing. Back to the point, I inquired about The Blank ATM Card. If it works or even Exist. They told me Yes and that its a card programmed for random money withdraws without being noticed and can also be used for free online purchases of any kind. This was shocking and i still had my doubts. Then i gave it a try and asked for the card and agreed to their terms and conditions. Hoping and praying it was not a scam. One week later i received my card and tried with the closest ATM machine close to me, It worked like magic. I was able to withdraw up to $10,000. This was unbelievable and the happiest day of my life. So far i have being able to withdraw up to $58000 without any stress of being caught. I don't know why i am posting this here, i just felt this might help those of us in need of financial stability. blank ATM has really change my life. If you want to contact them, Here is the email address (unlimitedblankatmcardcreator@gmail.com)
