Massachusetts Attorney General to investigate iTunes fraud
Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley announced Tuesday that her office will be investigating Apple Computers to determine if they are in compliance with her state's data breach notification laws.

Coakley spoke at a business luncheon at the Massachusetts' Advanced Cyber Security Center (ACSC), where she was reaching out to business leaders to assure them that compliance with the regulations would not be burdensome if they simply complied with the notification requirements.

Coakley herself was a victim of identity theft recently and her stolen credit card details were used to successfully make fraudulent iTunes purchases.

Has Apple's luck run out in denying there might be an issue with iTunes security?

1. WTF? How is this Apple's problem?
No wonder Martha Coakley got her ass handed to her by Scott Brown. THIS is the issue she chooses to take up? Someone stole her credit card and used it to buy songs on iTunes, and that's Apple's fault HOW? She's a fucking idiot. And NakedSecurity isn't much better for trying to tie a basic case of credit card theft to Apple, which had nothing to do with it.

But the Apple Haters of America love this story.
