My iTunes Account got hacked!
I felt a bit stupid discovering that my iTunes account was hacked for about a month already and only noticed it yesterday. Now, I’m just figuring out how it happened and will wait for Apple customer support if they can reverse the charges.
It all started with a nagging password prompt on my iPhone 3G. Can’t download any new apps because it says I got a wrong password. Since my DSL that month was sluggish, I thought it was just the connection. My last app download was Skype and Yahoo for the iPhone.
Then I remembered that email from iTunes about me requesting a new password (something I know I didn’t do int he first place). The account was tied to my Yahoo! email which I seldom check.
Yesterday, while checking the Meralco bill that was emailed to me, I also found these charges on my iTunes account:
That’s when I realized my account was hacked. I immediately requested a new iTunes password and also changed my Yahoo! account password. Reported all the paid apps to Apple as “Did not intend to buy this” and waiting for their response to reverse all the charges.
