Apple apologizes for the SPAM that appeared recently in the iCloud calendar

Cómo eliminar el SPAM del calendario de iCloud que ha aparecido recientemente

A few days ago we shared a post telling them how they could eliminate SPAM that was appearing in the iCloud calendars of several users. These were a series of event invitations that were configured in such a way that, as soon as the user accepted or rejected any of them, they continued to expand. It is believed that spammers were attacking any iCloud account they found active .

In light of this fact, the apple company acknowledged the problem in a statement to the iMore website, beginning with an apology to users who received SPAM on their iCloud calendar. Similarly, Apple indicated that it is currently “identifying and blocking suspicious senders” to try to stop the arrival of this type of message to users of its cloud services.

“We regret that some of our users are receiving SPAM calendar invitations. We are actively working to solve this problem by identifying and blocking suspicious senders, as well as the invitations that are sent “, assured the company. Although Apple offered an apology, it did not emphasize a specific solution to the problem.

As we can see from his statement, Cupertino’s signature made it clear that is attacking the problem from the server side , using SPAM detection techniques to prevent invitations from being shared.

As we mentioned in our recommendation post, the first thing to keep in mind is that under no circumstances should you accept or decline the event, because you will receive even more SPAM on your calendar.

If you do not use the iCloud calendar, instead of following the instructions and creating a “Junk calendar” folder, we suggest disabling the app notifications to avoid the inconvenience .
