Recently, Apple’s iCloud was breached a hundreds of photos of celebrities were leaked online. This caused a massive stir around the world.

The US government is asking the Chinese authorities to help them find out the culprits but Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) must work on its security system to ensure zero vulnerability.
