itunes gift card wholesaleAlthough many of the people who have claimed they were hacked report similar experiences — such as the types of apps purchased with the stolen funds, and similar changes to account information —The Global Mail speculates that there is just enough variation among the individual hacks to allow Apple to assert that they are not linked.
According to comments on Support Communities thread, the amount of money stolen has ranged from a few cents to 0. Some users also report that Apple refunded the charges.
Apple Insider speculates that the iTunes gift card algorithm may have been compromised and compares this problem to an earlier attack on iTunes. “In 2009, iTunes gift vouchers surfaced on Chinese websites for pennies on the dollar after hackers allegedly discovered a way to generate codes,” writes Apple Insider.
In 2011, 50,000 iTunes accounts were reportedly hacked and sold through a Chinese auction site. Chinese newspaper The Global Times purchased one such account for about and found that it was linked to someone’s credit card in the United States.Of all the errors that pop up every time I try to update, restore or (at times) even sync the iPhone, the notorious iTunes error 3194 is the one I fear most. Not that the error hasn’t got a fix, but the fact that there are plenty of fixes for the error and that you’ll have to try each one in a variety of combinations to fix the thing.
Apple’s support page for specific errors on iTunes isn’t all that helpful. For starters, Apple isn’t all that interested in people downgrading their iOS firmware. So naturally, all the signing is already done with so if you’re trying to downgrade to iOS 7.x an upgrade to iOS 8, you’re going to have a bad time (unless you’re lucky and you downgraded within the short time window where Apple still signs). And when you’re dealing with a jailbroken iPhone, it’s going to be even worse.
Error 3194 in iTunes
If you’re real lucky – and I mean seriously lucky – you’ll not see any errors crop up when you try to update or restore. Most users who don’t usually tinker with their iPhones are these lucky ones. For the rest of us, here’s what you can do to fix the iTunes error 3194. (Check out this tutorial in case you are facing iTunes error 17 issue.)
How to Fix iTunes Error 3194 During iOS Update on Your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch:
You’re just trying to update / upgrade the firmware but iTunes keeps throwing up this error. In most cases, it’s because of a simple problem with the hosts file. Here’s how to fix it:
For Windows, navigate to C:/Windows/System32/drivers/etc/ and find the file that’s named “hosts”
For Mac, the file is in /etc/
Open the file in Notepad (or any other text editing software) (for Windows users, open this with Administrator Privileges)
You’ll mostly have this line at the bottom of the file:
18.104.22.168 gs.apple.comiTunes keeps track of songs by creating a virtual library, allowing users to access and edit a song’s attributes. These attributes, known as metadata, are stored in a binary library file called iTunes Library, which uses a proprietary file format (“ITL”). It caches information like artist and genre from the audio format’s tag capabilities (the ID3 tag, for example) and stores iTunes – specific information like play count and rating. iTunes typically reads library data only from this file. A second file can also be created if users activate a preference; the iTunes Music Library.xml file is refreshed whenever information in iTunes is changed. It uses an XML format, allowing third – party apps to access the library information (including play count, last played date, and rating, which are not standard fields in the ID3v2.3 format). Apple’s own iDVD, iMovie, and iPhoto applications all access the library. If the first file exists but is corrupted, such as by making it zero – length, iTunes will attempt to reconstruct it from the XML file. Detailed third – party instructions regarding this are documented elsewhere. Beginning with iTunes 10.5.3 this behavior has been changed such that the XML file is not read automatically to recreate the database when the database is corrupted. Rather, the user should load the iTunes Library.xml file via File Library Import Playlist….
It has also been noted that iTunes does not automatically track changes to actual files in the library. If a file is moved or deleted, iTunes will display an exclamation mark beside the library entry and the user will need to manually amend the library record. Several third party tools address this problem.
iTunes supports ripping from CDs, but not from DVDs. However, in 2008, Apple and select film studios introduced “iTunes Digital Copy”, a bonus feature on some DVDs that provides a copy – protected and iTunes – compatible file for select films
