Article - hackers using lock feature

"Currently there is only speculation about how the attacks have been carried out. Apple has not yet responded officially," it says.
"With the possibility that this attack is linked to your ‘Apple ID’, affected users are advised to change your Apple ID password as soon as possible.
"It is not confirmed if or how these Apple IDs and passwords were accessed, but suggestions include that hackers may be simply reusing information they may have discovered during a breach of other online services. Unfortunately, many people still commonly reuse the same password for many of their online accounts. "

I wasn't presuming anything, just giving you a hard time. I've been picking on John and Charles a bit lately and just thought I'd spread the wealth around. kewl_glasses
