Went to restore Arden’s iPad yesterday after the wipedown; after the restore, the home button doesn’t work again, so I’ll spend some time finding the exact application that’s owning me. I suspect it’s malware supplied by work to enable email syncing.
Regardless, after I had authenticated with my Apple ID, I selected restore from cloud, and was presented with an authentication prompt.
Please note, this is not only not my Apple ID, it isn’t even close. Clearly there is some fuckup in the iCloud. But wait – things get more strange. Who is this firstname.lastname@example.org? A quick Google shows: Brian Mazzaferri. Now where do I know that name from? Right, the lead singer of a band my sister used to work with. How the fuck? Nothing about this makes sense, which is why I took a screen shot. Maybe I’ll wipe the iPad down again and see who it tries to authenticate me as.
