Apple has finally responded to accusations that its iPhone’s are tracking user data, denying any claims. While no location information is tracked, Apple does store Wi-Fi and cell tower data information to provide local results for maps and apps. A future software update will encrypt the file and reduce its size. In other news, the FBI says that online scams from China are responsible for businesses losing $11 million dollars this past year. Chinese hackers hijack the credentials to wire money through malicious emails and websites opened by employees. No level of cyber protection can prevent user error. And finally, India’s Department of Technology has passed new rules that will limit free speech on the Internet within the country. The rules let the government force providers to block any web content it finds objectionable. The list of acceptable objections includes anything that is blasphemous or threatens the state.
