Security experts say they are skeptical that a group of hackers called Turkish Crime Family actually possess a cache of hundreds of millions of Apple iCloud account credentials. A more plausible explanation, they say, is that crooks used credential stuffing attacks to amass a limited number of valid Apple usernames and passwords in attempt to extort money from Apple.

Earlier this week, the group identifying itself as the Turkish Crime Family claimed to have a database of 750 million iCloud.com, me.com and mac.com email addresses and credentials. Apple quickly cast doubts on the claim.
