What do Apple employees think of Android

Apple employees sold customer data

In a large-scale investigation, Chinese authorities arrested 22 members of a criminal gang for stealing data. That reported theSouth China Morning Post and the French News Agency AFP Last Thursday.

These are employees who were responsible for direct marketing and outsourcing from Apple in China. The arrested are accused of having traded fraudulently with the US company's customer data. The personal data comes from both iPhone and Mac users.

The suspects have extracted this data from internal databases. For a customer data set, they achieved between 1.30 and 23 euros.

The data stolen includes usernames, Apple IDs, and phone numbers. It is unclear whether this is exclusively about data from Chinese Apple customers.

The case shows once again that even data that is collected with the best of intentions and managed by a reputable company is not safe from misuse.
