UK hacker pleads guilty to blackmailing Apple with iCloud account information

A British hacker has been given 300 hours of community service for trying to blackmail Apple for $100,000 in gift cards by threatening to leak the information of millions of iCloud accounts. Kerem Albayrak, 22, demanded Apple give him $75,000 in crypto-currency and threatened that he would factory-reset 319m iCloud accounts and ’dump his databases online if his demands were not met’.
