Re: Yes, I was hacked. Hard.
I don't know which is worse though, the social engineering of Apple or the recovering of data after a remote wipe
I'm not too surprised the hacker is talking to him. Egos tend to do that. It also wouldn't surprise me to find out he's from a non-extradition-friendly country, so even if they know who it is they still may not be able to do anything.
Mat at least appears to be exponentially more calm than I would be, if someone from my computer manufacturer's tech support allowed a hacker to wipe three of my devices. If I were Apple, I'd be moving mountains to try to get his data back.
said by Mango:Except that if his data is recoverable, it will show that the remote "wipe" available on iDevices is useless.

Out the 10BaseT, through the modem, down the co-ax, over the fiber, across the backhaul, past the edge router, off the network...nothing but net
I'm not familiar with the technology, but unless it does something as effective as a DoD-style wipe, it will be as adequate as a simple format.
