With computer hacking at an all time high, it was just a matter of time before some a**hole figured out how to hack your itunes account and get not only your music, but your credit card info as well.
If you have an iTunes account, you might want to check any recent charges.
According to USA Today’s tech blog, 50,000 iTunes accounts have appeared for sale on an online auction site.
Launched in 2001, iTunes allows millions of account holders to download digital copies of music and video.
According to the article, the listings offer access to iTunes accounts for as little as 15 cents. You probably won’t be able to check the listings for your account because the site is in Chinese.
An intrepid reporter for the Chinese Global Times, named Zou Le, broke the story. Le paid $5 for an iTunes username and password, and got access to credit card details and the address of an American iTunes customer.
Long story short, buying things over the internet, while convenient, isn’t the safest thing in the world. It’s a dirty game ya’ll, keep your eyes on your riches, word to Tupac.
