Was Kate Upton snared by the oldest online trick in the book?
The FBI is investigating whether the supermodel fell victim to not to an iCloud security breach, but phishing, the classic online scamming technique.
It's gotten more sophisticated over the years, but the premise is the same: You get an email informing you there's some sort of problem with your account.
In order to fix it, of course, the helpful people contacting you will need your personal info - username, phone number, credit card, even your password.
Basically you unwittingly give the hackers all they need because they masquerade as a person or company trying to help you, and they're well disguised.
In this case, the emails sent to celebrities might have been doctored up to look like it was coming from Apple, which backs up their info to its iCloud.
