Hacked iTunes Accounts Being Sold For Just A Few Dollars, In China – [REPORT]

According to a new report by AFP, a number of “hacked” iTunes accounts are available to buy, some on sale for as low as a few dollars. The report claims the accounts (credit and debit details included) were being made available to purchase via Taobao, one of China’s largest online retail stores.

Taobao said in a statement to AFP on Thursday that the company took “all reasonable and necessary measures to protect the rights of consumers” and could not act unless it received a formal request to remove the ads.

“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.
