Problems in the world of iTunes – stolen passwords and/or hacked accounts

iTunes has done to online music / app -purchase what Amazon first did to books and other items, make it fun, fast and convenient – as there was no hassle to put your credit card information again and again. Just one click purchases and you were done. This convenience comes with a price if your account gets compromised.

Let’s see if Apple makes any statements about what really has happened.
