HACKERS HAVE TARGETED iTune users through their PayPal accounts, deleting their stored music, videos and software.

Some users have lost thousands of dollars worth of downloads, according to reports from TechCrunch.

The site features a Tweet from one Joey Bruce which reads:

Someone hacked my iTunes/paypal acct and drained everything from my bank account. Life is kicking me in the balls while I’m down.

Those affected have complained about Apple’s reaction to reports, which has allegedly been weak.

Worse of all, the scam is apparently not even new. It is reportedly a “phishing” virus that has been known of for some time.

It has been reported that PayPal have been reimbursing customers affected by the attack.

Meanwhile,  Apple has told customers to contact their financial institutions regarding the scam.
