Problem is, it's not just apple! A good object lesson here!
That is why I stay out of social networks, on-line storage etc., and make sure I keep all my 'security' stuff up to date. A couple of years ago I was hacked via Facebook and someone put a nasty 'keylogger' into my system. Fortunately I found it quickly and the wonderful guys in here helped me to clean up the mess. Once bitten - twice shy !
Its too easy, these days. Everyone asks the same questions about your date of birth and mothers maiden name. They are not security questions, they are all now common knowledge.
Did you do the password security quiz at the end of the article, some other security related quizzes are also available along with the password one, quite interesting. Some of the questions are irrelevant from a security aspect but informative all the same. Worth looking at.
