Apple has issued a warning to iCloud users about organized cyberattacks, after previously noting that its servers were not breached. The Chinese government is being blamed for the attacks, but Apple was careful not to finger any attacks based in China.

"We're aware of intermittent organized network attacks using insecure certificates to obtain user information, and we take this very seriously," Apple recently noted. "If users get an invalid certificate warning in their browser while visiting http://www.icloud.com, they should pay attention to the warning and not proceed."

 

This is another wave of bad news for Apple, occurring shortly after multiple celebrities had personal images stolen from their iCloud accounts.
