MacRumors: iCloud users on Windows found someone else’s photos on their computers
iPhone and Windows users complained about problems with the iCloud service. This is reported by MacRumors.
Media journalists referred to their own forum, where Windows users talked about the problem with iCloud. Some iPhone owners found that the library synchronized through the cloud service contained photos unknown to them.
“I was shown photos of other people’s families that I had never seen in my life, football matches and other random pictures,” said a user under the nickname Sleeping_Ghost. “What the hell… I got a photo of someone’s daughter in pajamas,” complained a forum visitor under the nickname vinegarshots. Journalists suggested that someone else’s content was shown to iCloud and Windows users by accident.
The specialists said that the problem is probably not related to a specific version of the program: “Uninstalling the iCloud app for Windows does not seem to solve the problem, as it may be on the server side.” Apple has not commented on the situation.
Earlier, security experts said that the technical feature of the iCloud service allows you to monitor users of Apple technology. Attackers can use this method to find out the personal data of the owners of iPhone and other devices.
