This happened to me very recently! I'm confused as I don't really have an iphone/other apple device to sync it with. The only syncing I did was to set up the mail with my e-mail accounts....could that have caused it?

This happened to me as well. Is there a virus around. Also my wife's picture has changed as well on my icloud
This I was told is related to a virus by some tech company. mythlinks.com
They had me download an antivirus after charging me money then they disconnected both the remote access and the phone. I am actually more worried now.

Although I can't say what's going on, I can say this is not the behavior of any known malware. It doesn't make much sense as malware, anyway.
More concerning is this tech company you refer to. Did you contact them initially, or did they contact you? There's a scam going around where a "tech company" will call you offering services, sometimes saying that they have detected that you are infected with malware (complete baloney), and in the process of "fixing" the problem, best case scenario they just charge you for a "service" that wasn't real and you didn't need. Worst case scenario, they use the remote access that you grant them to install malware on your machine and go nuts with the credit card you paid them with.
This is especially concerning because mythlinks.com does not go to any real site. Is it possible you mis-typed it, or is that the actual web site address you were given?
