Apple Inc. (AAPL) is Enhancing Security

As you know, there has been a leakage of information from iCloud accounts, most of which belong to celebrities, that created some turmoil regarding the security of personal data. The New York Times said in an article that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) was prompt in taking actions against future attacks.

Up to this point, the hackers haven’t been identified and there’s also little knowledge as to how they managed to bypass security. Rumors mentioned a certain bug in the Find My iPhone App, but it hasn’t been confirmed. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) made no statements back then, yet it took control of the situation. Alerts are to be added to the general functionality so that any possible activity related to break-in would be depicted. They will be in the form of push notifications, that will diligently appear on your devices as soon as anybody tries to: change the password to your account, upload your backed-up data to a new device or log into your account for the first time from a different device.

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) will also inform the customer through e-mails about possible attempts to gain any form of access to sensitive data. This practice was functional even before celebrities saw their personal photos circulating on the web, but the service did not cover uploading files to a new device.

These updates should be implemented in about two weeks, but Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) hasn’t closed the case yet. The company is working with law officials in the investigation and it reported no breaches in its data servers. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) stated that some of the celebrity accounts were broken into after repeated targeted attacks, like phishing. There have been numerous other attempts to guess answers to security questions in order to attain the passwords.

Recently announced upgrades can not guarantee perfect security, but they will serve well in documenting any dubious activity with sensitive data.
