Millions of accounts may be at risk after two of the largest mobile payments apps have been compromised.
Users of China's two largest mobile payment services are reporting unauthorized purchases through the App Store. There are consumers who claim to have lost more than $ 300 with these fraudulent transactions.
The companies involved indicate that the problem originates from a set of stolen Apple IDs. Alipay has already asked the apple company to investigate the case.
Although WeChat and Alipay have already identified and acknowledged a problem, the number of affected users is not known. However, with more than 1.5 billion users, many people may be at risk of seeing their credentials being used to make payments at the Apple App Store.
To date, there are no suspects or clues as to how accounts might have been stolen, but the Cupertino giant suggests users of these apps will change their passwords.
