Hacked Giftcard

It’s a well known fact that if you happen to stumble upon taobao.com, Chinese auction site, you can find all kinds of hacked iTunes products.

Now, a report claims that hacked iTunes accounts are now available on the site for the miniscule price of a couple dollars.

These accounts, with credit cards, are now available to anybody with a few bucks and some time, proving it doesn’t require much to steal iTunes credentials and AFP has reported that thousands of accounts have been traded on the site in the last few months.

TaoBao has said that it is aware of the problem and is taking action against it.

AFP reports:

At this time, we have not received any information from Apple or any other principal related to the iTunes accounts indicating that these products either violate our listing rules or infringe on the IP of others.
